It’s easy to know you’ve reached Morro Bay on California’s Central Coast. You’ll see dramatic Morro Rock, a volcanic peak that rises out of the ocean floor and dominates the harbor. Known as the Gibraltar of the Pacific, this landmark rock is one of the Nine Sisters that dot the coast south from Morro Bay to San Luis Obispo.

Snap your pictures and then set off to explore this unpretentious fishing town. Its working harbor is home to a historic fishing fleet that hauls in wild-caught salmon, albacore tuna, halibut, squid, cod, and Dungeness crab. Beat-up boats and salty fishermen in galoshes give the town a laid-back, workaday appeal – along with some of the freshest seafood that you’ll ever eat.
This is the place for a seafood feast: roll up your sleeves and dig in. Locals love Giovanni’s Fish Market, and you can dine on the dockside at Windows on the Water and Galley Seafood Grill. Watch the fishing boats putter by and sip white wines from nearby Los Oso Valley.
Morro Bay’s calm, protected waters are great for kayaking, biking, fishing, hiking, and wildlife-watching. Paddle the bay on a guided tour (or rent your own gear) and see harbor seals and sea otters. Find surf spots to the north at Morro Strand State Beach, and play golf just south of town at Morro Bay State Park.
Take a stroll in the sea breeze along the Embarcadero, Morro Bay’s main tourist destination and a working port. Book a deep-sea fishing adventure or an eco-tour of the Morro Bay National Estuary. Check out the Morro Bay Skateboard Museum. Browse boutiques for souvenirs, including colorful corals and seashells at The Shell Shop.
