Morro Bay & Monterrey Bay in California

Morro Bay is a small city around three hours south of San Jose. The outcrop of rocks and the land near the water make this location an interesting and relaxing place.

Monterrey Bay is a bay between Monterrey and Santa Cruz. Monterrey is famous for its jazz festival. The Bay is another amazing spot especially for travellers who love watching kite surfing!

You’d never get bored of seeing them and you could stare at them all day in wonder. People practice this sport during every month of the year.

Although the water was quite freezing at the time of the photo shoot, the amazing kite surfers seemed to have strong resistance to cold and wind.
