delightful beach town of Cayucos is approximately 13 miles south of
Cambria on Highway One and is considered by many as one of the few
remaining classic California beach towns. It is a California original.
Born during the days of Spanish land grants, Cayucos grew up with
sailing ships and steamers, rumrunners and revenuers. Gamblers and
seafarers met in the Old Cayucos Tavern, and adventurers and romantics
of all kinds still meet there today. A wide stretch of sandy beach,
distinctive pier, eclectic shops, and fine dining make Cayucos a perfect
day-trip from Cambria. Don’t forget your surfboard!
The Murals of Cayucos
The Cayucos Mural Society was founded in 1992 to support the painting of
high-quality murals covering historical and environmental topics that
characterize Cayucos. These impressive murals can be found on walls
dedicated by merchants and private citizens around town. Several artists
have contributed their talents and have created a collage of color
throughout Cayucos, bringing enhancement to the town and increasing
awareness of public art.
