Beautiful ocean view and fun to get at just the right angle for the Face Rock. Part of the Bandon Loop Drive West of Highway 101.

Lots of rocks and sea stacks off the shore at Bandon. The old part of town is difficult to navigate, and the viewpoints are not that great. The drive down the remainder of the coast to the California border is spectacular!

I actually live next to this area. The legend of the Face Rock is famous, as the natives lived along the Coquille river, but came to the Ocean in Bandon to have ceremonies. Bandon, especially Face Rock is a spiritual place

The view is worth the stop. A trip to Bandon's beaches are a great weekend stop or stopover on hwy 101.

This location has a large parking lot, a nice short walking path that parallels the beach, nice restrooms (flushing toilets!) and easy access to a path/stairs down to the beach. It's the perfect place to have stunning views of the Oregon coast from either atop a cliff or right on the sand.

Face Rock State Park Bandon Unless you are closely watching as you drive along Hwy 101 there is a good chance you will drive right pass the turn off to Face Rock State Park. Even then it will take some exploring to finally make your way to the entrance to this small state park. Once there you will find a... More

Couldn't believe the rock with the face on it. Also, four people with rakes drawing a "maze" in the sand. Breath taking views and so very peaceful.

Even if you don't go for a walk on the beach, a great view stop. All the rest areas arm worth stopping for.

This is a "drive to" Viewpoint with beach access via a path and steep stair. Excellent views of Face Rock and other offshore formations.
