Spending time together in this peaceful location can be as relaxing or as active as you choose. Here are a few reasons you should consider honeymooning in Morro Bay, brought to you by the people who know the area best, the welcoming staff at Ascot Suites.

Stunning Natural Beauty
This area is the perfect place to spend your honeymoon if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the usual popular vacation spots. Nature lovers can enjoy a trip to the nearby El Moro Elfin Forest, which covers 90 acres and is home to a multitude of plants, animals, and birds. Walk hand in hand along the five-mile trail that twists and turns through this magnificent forest. For the more energetic honeymooners, a few miles south of Morro Bay is Los Osos Oaks State Natural Reserve, which offers outdoor enthusiasts unique opportunities for walking, hiking, biking, and observing wildlife in its natural habitat.
With Morro Bay’s rocky coastline and its clear, sheltered waters, there are plenty of activities that provide a way to spend all-important quality time together. Get outdoors for an idyllic picnic on Morro Bay’s Sandspit Beach or try your hand at kayaking or paddleboarding. This picturesque coastline has an abundance of hidden coves and beaches and presents the opportunity to view the seashore and marine life from a different perspective in a relaxing, fun way.
Romantic Cruises on the Bay
Take a cruise aboard a two-story riverboat with a comfortable interior and an open-air upper deck to experience the best views of Morro Bay and its harbor. You can also take sailing lessons, go whale watching, or choose a romantic sunset cruise. Many cruises feature trips around the iconic Morro Rock, an extinct volcano that juts out of the Pacific and stands 576 feet high. Morro Rock is part of the Morro Rock State Preserve and is home to a colony of peregrine falcons along with gulls and a large variety of seabirds. Cruising the bay to view sights like these offers a great chance to take photos and capture vivid memories of this unique time in your life.
Evenings are special, and you can add a fun bit of romance to your honeymoon by taking in a movie at the nearby Sunset Drive-In before sharing a special meal in a cozy corner of one of the many restaurants located on the Central Coast. This area’s eateries offer an eclectic mix of international dishes and seafood at its freshest, which you can pair with a bottle of your favorite wine before taking a moonlit walk around the bay back to your hotel.
