Gibraltar of the Pacific, perhaps. More likely just a large rock. Impressive, inhabited by seagulls and seabirds, perhaps some seals. Otters are offshore. Dominates Morro Bay.

The bike trails around the rock are the best. What a beautiful setting this place portrays. Nice benches all around to sit and watch the boats,surfers and especially the sea otters. One of the most spectacular beach places in California.

No trip to Morro Bay is complete unless you go out to the “Rock”! Love to watch the wild life and tourists around the area! Best place to watch the sea otters swimming near by!

Morro Rock is beautiful in all kinds of weather, from all sides and anytime of day. There is a wonderful walkway from town out to the rock and beach, with otters and boats coming & going along side. Many restaurants in walking distance.

In the bay to the left of the rock one will find a great abundance of Sea Otters and Seals. Plenty of bird life abounds as well. Excellent surfing conditions abound.
