Enjoy this scenic seaside retreat
A quiet town, Cayucos invites folks
to slow down, smell the ocean
air, pick up sea glass, and never take
life for granted. The broad main street
recalls the days of stagecoaches and
cowboys, and some of the buildings
there date back to that bye-gone era.
Cayucos is the number one desti-
nation on the Central Coast for antique
shoppers and a great place to just cool
down and get away from the heat. It is
the perfect beachside town for renting
a beach house and enjoying a week of
sand castles, sunsets and relaxation.
Public art
Cayucos has a number of public
murals and sculptures on display at
various locations. The art includes a
“Mosaic Sculpture Honoring Indig-
enous People,” an underwater scene of
the Cave of Mysteries, and more. Visit for a map
of the art.
Explore tidepools
Rocky areas around the pier on
Cayucos State Beach are great areas to
find tidepools. Estero Bluffs State Park
north of Cayucos is another area with
plenty of tidepools. Depending on the
tide, the animals that can be seen in
tidepools include small fish, shrimp,
sea stars, hermit crabs, anemones,
sponges, sea urchins, tube worms, sea
cucumbers and many, many more.
Please leave the tidepools exactly as
you found them. Tidepools are special,
fragile systems and disturbing the
animals and plants can cause harm.
Fishing on the pier and from the
shore of Cayucos State Beach is a fa-
vorite activity for locals and visitors. No
fishing license is needed. Surf fishing
is also allowed but a license is needed.
Deep sea fishing is also available from
local commercial fishing businesses.
Beach activities
The Cayucos State Beach stretches
five miles south to Morro Bay. Run, jog,
or walk as far as you like. Leashed dogs
are welcome. Other beach activities
include surfing, boogie boarding,
kayaking or sitting in the sand and
building sand castles.
