At the mouth of Morro Bay stands 576-foot-high Morro Rock, one of nine small volcanic peaks, or morros, in the area. A short walk leads to a breakwater, with the harbor on one side and crashing ocean waves on the other. You may not climb the rock, where endangered falcons and other birds nest. Sea lions and otters often play in the water below the rock.

So not just a bird dropping covered rock as stated in the other review! It's a massive force and presence on the central coast, a wildlife sanctuary, a beautiful beach and waterfront, and pwerful to just sit and ponder as a force of nature. It's one of our favorite places to go to hide away and enjoy the small town, huge attractions, cool little galleries and funky stores. Not to mention the seafood...and priced right. It's one o fthe least expensive
coastal getaways in California. You're also near Hearst Castle, San Luis Obispo and some serious wine tasting. The rock is the best!
