360° VR Panoramas of Santa Cruz, Monterey, Big Sur and the Central Coast
Morro Rock at Morro Bay
California

One of the most striking sights along the central coast is 581 foot (177 meters) high Morro Rock. Geologically it is an eroded volcanic neck, one of a chain of such features extending inland to San Luis Obispo known as the Nine Sisters.

One side of the rock was quarried in the nineteenth century, partly for stones used to make the Morro Bay Breakwater. Originally an island, harbor improvements have made the rock into the tip of a peninsula. It is now protected as a state wildlife refuge to protect nesting peregrine falcons.
