This is actually a great weekend getaway from Morro Bay which is hardly ever used because the locals think that it is surrounded by kelp.  I have found that if I line up with the cove due south of the cove I have always had a clear path straight into the cove.  Don't let the name fool you, this is not a harbor, it is a small cove were maybe 3 boats could fit.  There is a submerged rock mid cove on the west side but there is plenty of room between it and the visible rocks on the east side. I have anchored here with a single anchor with 150 ft. of scope and still had 50 yards each side to the rocks.  It can be a little bit rolly in this anchorage so a stern anchor takes care of that. You can anchor in 20-35 of water.
