An ideal stop over on our way to Monterey Bay from Morro Bay
The distance between Morro Bay and Monterey Bay is farther than we wanted to commit to. There is only one viable refuge on this part of the coast and that is San Simeon. The home of Hearst Castle.
This is a beautiful little bay that offers pretty good protection from surge and good anchor holding. The beach is lovely and hiking trails abound. We landed on the beach in our dinghy without incident. The surf was very tame.
