Information: Don’t pass Cayucos by, you have to at least exit the highway and cruise town but it is an even more fun place to stay and play. It is the perfect little beach down that hasn’t lost its charm, like something out of the 60’s or 70’s.
Near Points of Interest: Morro Bay is just about 5 minutes south and just to the north is Estero Bluffs and Harmony Headlands California State Parks if you want to visit some unspoiled undeveloped California Coast.
Beach Access and Day Use Parks & Picnic Areas: The nicest beach is right downtown at the foot of Cayucos Drive, Cayucos State Beach; there is the pier, fine white beach, surfable break and nice swimming/wading beach with summertime lifeguard, restrooms with running water and outdoor showers, swings and more… I have two favorite places to picnic in Cayucos. one is down by the downtown beach behind the Veterans Hall (10 Cayucos Drive) the picnic tables are beach-side but fenced in and protected from the elements, the beach and the restrooms are quite close as are a liquor store and take out if you forgot anything or want something hot. The other picnic area is part of a large Morro Bay State beach that stretches all the way to the south end of Cayucos, it is Morro Strand State Beach; there is a large paved parking area, restrooms, running water, picnic tables and a nice beach it is off Pacific Avenue at 24th Street.
Best places to Eat: For Dining in Cayucos I would suggest Hoppe's Garden Bistro & Wine Shop (78 N. Ocean Avenue; 805-995-1006) and Schooners Wharf (171 N Ocean Ave; 805-995-3883) in that order; or maybe Lunch at Hoppe’s, dinner at Schooners and breakfast at the Old Cayucos Bakery and Deli (84 North Ocean Ave).
Nearby Hotel Lodgings & Resorts: When it comes to lodging in Cayucos most are comfortable and accommodating but they are all quite small; the best small inn that I would suggest calls themselves a B&B but is really more a small ocean-side inn called the On The Beach B&B if you are looking for a good Bed and Breakfast which is a good choice for relaxing in Cayucos pick the Bed and Breakfastish lodging that calls themselves an inn pick the historic remodeled old house the Cass House Inn and Restaurant, and I should also mention the popular Cayucos Sunset Inn which is and actually calls themselves a B&B.
Near Campgrounds: There are two great places to camp within close range of Cayucos. The first if you want to camp right next to the beach is Morro Strand State Park Campground which is a primitive campground at the north end of Morro Bay, about 4 ½ miles. The second if you would rather stay at a forest style campground with more amenities like showers and RV hookups there is the recently refurbished Morro Bay State Park which is about 9 miles south of Cayucos.
Gasoline, Public Restrooms, Supplies: Cayucos Gas & Mini Mart 198 N Ocean Avenue at Cayucos Drive. Public Restrooms with outdoor showers across from the Vets Hall on the State Beach, also public restrooms next to the beach/picnic area at the south end of town just off PCH 1 at 24th street by Pacific Ave.
Other Facilities, Services or Activities: If you enjoy back country roads Cayucos has a wonderful road “Old Creek Rd” which will take you through the foothills where it ties in with highway 46 which provides a fast smooth drive over to Paso wine country or back to the coast south of Cambria, you can also continue where the road turns to Santa Rosa Creek Road which provides a beautiful curvy and breathtakingly scenic but not so well kept drive into Cambria (one of my favorite sports car or motorcycle rides). 4th of July Independance Day Celebration: Cayucos is the best place in the world to play on this holiday; funky small beach town parade, sand-sculpture contest, barbecues, fireworks display and more...
