Morro Bay Travel Guide
Welcome to Morro Bay!
Morro Bay rests on California's Central Coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles. This working fishing village is well known for the famous Morro Rock landmark that sits just offshore in Morro Bay State Park. The dome-shaped rock was once used to build the breakwater for Morro Bay, but is now a protected sanctuary for endangered peregrine falcons. The Morrow Rock's sense of protection spreads over into the village itself, where the pace is slow and visitors are welcome year round to explore the area's state parks and beaches or to relax over a seafood dinner, fresh from the sea. The Morrow Bay Golf Course is a popular attraction for golfers because it is the only course located within a California state park and provides ocean views from most holes. If visiting in October, the Morro Bay Harbor Festival invites the public to participate in celebrating the coastal community through showcases and tastings from local wineries, merchants and industries.
