Poor access, surrounded by homes on the beach, and no dogs allowed. Not the most family friendly beach in my opinion.

Very nice beach with scenic views of Moro Rock and dunes. Easy access, lots of parking, very accessible. Beautiful stretch of coast on Highway 1.

This wasn’t exactly our favorite beach along the CA coast. It was great for families however, as the beach is long and the waves relatively calm. The scenery wasn’t so impressive and the natural beauty was ok.

Long walk from parking lot to beach, but sand is wide and flat. Water stays shallow for several yards so it's easy to wade in. Plenty of sand dollars to admire.

A beautiful area to watch kite surfers. The day we were there was very windy and kite surfers were having a great time.

The kids and I love coming to this beach to relax and to search for sand dollars. It is a nice beach and usually not very crowded.

We camped here for 1 night in our 25' trailer. The space originally assigned was not suitable to us as we did not want to unhook. There was a great camp host would found us another place to park. They do offer full hookups but...More

Morro Bay is not warn. Compare it to Monterey. It can be foggy and windy any time of the year. No matter when you come make sure you bring warm clothes. I speak as an 18 year resident.
