"Where the Old West Meets the Ocean"

Cayucos by-the-Sea is located on California’s scenic Central Coast, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Our town sits quietly between the Pacific Ocean and the rolling hillsides of open ranchland and is what some people call "the last of the California beach towns." The Cayucos Chamber of Commerce strives to be a cornerstone in the development of our unique beach community.

Listen to the quiet and stillness that only a small town in an untouched countryside can provide. Cayucos is the perfect remedy for those to get away from the frustrations of life in the fast lane in our crowded cities. Peaceful, underdeveloped ranchlands with cattle grazing on undulating, oak-crested hills provide a respite for the city weary. Cayucos is a California original.
