Morro Rock, a State Historic Landmark, was formed about 23 million years ago from the plugs of long-extinct volcanoes. Morro Rock was an important navigational aid for mariners for over 300 because the rock is approximately 576 feet tall which made it the most visible in a chain of 9 peaks.
Morro Rock is a beautiful Northern California Beach with a rough ocean environment and sandy dunes. This park/beach is often used for commercial shoots, weddings and festivals.
During the summer months, from roughly Memorial Day to Labor Day, the Morro Bay Harbor Department staffs 2 lifeguard towers on the City Beach. Lifeguards are on duty from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Sandspit and Morro Strand State Beach have sensitive Snowy Plover nesting areas that are fenced during nesting season to protect their habitat.
