Cayucos town and beach

Lunch on a sunny day in Cayucos is a blissful experience! The main strip, Ocean Avenue, is sheltered from the cold sea air and it's nice to sit at one of the outdoor cafes and watch the attractive people stroll by. The funky shops and cafes are colorful against the backdrop of little hills. Bijou Bakery, on a side street in a little yellow house, has yummy scones. You can buy fancy packages of cookies inside a historic red building at Brown Butter Cookie Co. The Hidden Kitchen is a modern Vegan cafe. 
After a meal, walk to the beach and enjoy the views of distant Morro Rock through the misty sea air.
There are some baby swings on the beach near the pier, and a dolphin statue. Restrooms are at the base of the pier- the sink is yucky and sprays you with everyone else's dirty water, so go at a cafe instead!
People fly kites on this windy beach. The pier makes for pretty photos. Have an ice cream or gelato at the base of the pier, at Cayucos Candy Counter. Duckies Chowder House has seating in the middle of all the action at the base of the pier. Cayucos Skate Park is behind Duckies Chowder House, raised off the ground in a parking lot. Across the street is the Cass House, a beautiful Victorian house.
Schooner's has a small area with good views of the pier. 
While exploring this coast, don't miss out on William Hearst Beach, where you just may see a giant Elephant Seal up close. Also, check out the Elephant Seal viewing area in San Simeon.
