Morro Bay Activities
California Adventure Travel: Morro Bay style
Sheltered from the sea on the spectacular California central coast, Morro Bay CA is just a short drive to San Simeon, Hearst Castle, the Edna Valley and Paso Robles wine regions, and the southern entrance to the dramatic Big Sur coastline. For a prime California coast vacation, this unique fishing village is both a destination and a starting point for visitors looking to explore the incomparable natural beauty of California coast travel. From your room at the Embarcadero Inn at Morro Bay, you will see two of Morro Bay's most memorable features: Morro Rock and the Morro Bay Harbor.
Morro Bay is home to the state historical monument known as Morro Rock. This dome-shaped sentinel is 576 foot high, 50 acres at its base and now serves as a preserve for the endangered peregrine falcons that nest on its sides. Morro Rock, a volcanic peak over 21 million years old, was once a navigational marker for Portuguese explorer Juan Cabrillo in 1542 and is also called "the Gibraltar of the Pacific."
The Morro Bay Harbor is home to one of California's largest and most productive commercial fishing fleets. The fishing industry, which provides area restaurants and fish markets with the freshest of seafood, is at the heart of Morro Bay culture. For those looking to enjoy kayaking in California, the Harbor offers incredible scenery and nature watching opportunities enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. California kayaking has never been better!
