Cayucos is charming small village on scenic Highway 1 about 25 miles south of Hearst Castle and just north of Morro Bay . It offers visitors a wide variety of activities: strolling on the pier, playing on the beach and ocean, shopping in several large antique stores, surfing, fishing, downtown wine tasting and more. The town offers several excellent restaurants, most offering fresh seafood options, paired with the excellent SLO County wines and with the locally produced fresh fruit & vegetables. The town hosts a Friday morning downtown Farmers Market in summer and many special events through the year. Check out the annual New Year’s Day Polar Bear Dip, enjoyed (??) by thousands every year. There are many motels, ranging from inexpensive to premium.
