About Morro Strand State Beach – North Beach in Cayucos, California

Morro Strand State Beach has two sections, north and south, which are separated by a long stretch of non-state-owned beaches. The North Beach at Morro Strand State Beach is a wide sandy beach in the southern part of Cayucos, CA. Next to the state park parking lot is a wider section of beach with no homes. This is the mouth of Old Creek which sometimes flows across the sand but rarely amounts to much. The state beach continues south from the creek in front of Studio Drive and the homes in the southernmost part of Cayucos, CA. Kitesurfers can be seen zipping back and forth just offshore. North Morro Beach has two parking areas. One is at Pacific Avenue and 24th Street (restrooms at this lot) and the other is nearby just off Highway 1 at Studio Drive. From this beach you can walk sand all the way north to the pier at Cayucos State Beach (except at high tide) or south to Morro Rock – a distance of about five miles!
