Welcome to Morro Bay!

The seaside village of Morro Bay is a picture-perfect getaway for travelers seeking outdoor adventures and a gorgeous natural setting. Located along scenic Highway 1 midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Morro Bay is easy to reach and hard to leave. Once you experience the beauty and charm - not to mention the fun you’ll have kayaking, biking, fishing, beachcombing and just plain relaxing - you’ll wonder why you’d ever go anyplace else.

Of course, with its busy harbor and active fishing industry, Morro Bay is known as the place in San Luis Obispo County to savor local seafood, including local oysters and fresh salmon. Surrounding farms and vineyards yield a bounty of outstanding food and wines served with flair at Morro Bay’s renowned harbor-view restaurants. For many, it’s the antiquing, shopping and browsing the art galleries that pulls them in. Of course, capping it off is Morro Bay’s friendly, laid-back style - a warm and welcoming backdrop to the vacation of your dreams.
