15 miles to the South is Montana De Oro State Park. A great place to explore, hike, and surf.

Cayucos attracts people from all over the world.  They often come to enjoy the main events held throughout the year such as car shows, antique fairs, wine and food events, music events and the very popular 4th Of July Celebration.  Please check the events calendar located on the Chamber of Commerce web site to plan your visit in advance.
CAYUCOS is centrally located between San Simeon and the world famous Hearst Castle, and the wine country of Paso Robles.  Only 6 miles from the stunning Morro Rock in Morro Bay.  A short drive to the Mission San Luis Obispo.
Biking and hiking trails are located nearby on the Estero Bluffs just north of Cayucos, and 15 miles away from Montana De Oro State Park.  A breathtaking drive with beautiful views of the estuary and sand dunes for those not so adventurous.
For guests that just can't stay out of the water, your in luck with a stay at the Cayucos Motel.
Located only a few steps to the sand and pier, your fun by the sea is centrally located.  Surf stores are are within walking distance of the Motel, and have surfboard, boogie board, kayak and wetsuit rentals.  Cayucos has been glorified recently in SURFER Magazine.  Also a day in a kayak might produce whale, dolphin, seal, and an otter sighting.
Tide pooling is a fun low tide activity.  Our rocks display sea stars, sea anemonies, hermit crabs and the like.  Please be considerate and leave living animals in their home.  (Its a State Law).
