Morro Strand State Beach is a gorgeous wild beach at the base of Morro Rock. The incredible formations on the rock loom above you as the wild surf swirls below. Crazy surfers brave the freezing cold water and the unpredictable currents. Swarms of birds fly overhead riding the gusts of wind. It's a beautiful scene- nature in all its wildness.
The beach stretches far north and you can enjoy a long walk along it. Or you can walk from the southernmost part of the beach along the Harborwalk (here you're almost guaranteed to see sea otters!) into Morro Bay town where you can eat some fresh seafood at a restaurant right on the bay while you watch seals swim by. You can also play a game on the giant chess board or walk a little further along Embarcadero to ship-themed Tidelands Playground.
