The northeast bay offers a different kind of beach experience. Located on the calm, pristine bay, ideal for launching kayaks and paddleboards in the back bay National Estuary. With a perfect view of the sand spit, and abundant wildlife, this beach is a short walk from the heron and cormorant rookery located near the entrance of the National History Museum. Morro Bay State Park Beach is rustic, natural spot calling for exploration and wildlife viewing. It also offers a less seen and unspoiled view of Morro Rock.
