Morro Bay

Morro Bay


The Gibraltar of the Pacific, Morro Rock rises above the sea like the head of a turbaned genie standing on the ocean floor. The towering 576 foot high rock is the focal point for the picturesque fishing community of Morro Bay.

Nature is an integral part of life in Morro Bay. It’s a protected estuary with wetlands and rookeries. Morro Rock is a state historic landmark and preserve, nesting home to the endangered peregrine falcon and over 250 species of birds. The base of the 576 foot rock is open to visitors but the rock itself, at the entrance to Morro Bay Harbor, is off limits to climbing.
