Sunset views are spectacular

Face Rock and all the rocks around it are lovely to view. Give yourself time for a long walk at low tide.

We are renting a small house here in Band on and have walking along this beautiful Pacific coast and so far the Face Rock area is one of the most beautiful. The scene is beyond description....so amazing to take a video and pictures or just admire it and take it all in....amazing

Couldn't see it well because of the fog, so I couldn't tell the facial features apart. However, Bandon beacfront ih in general is a lovely place to stroll through. Worth a stop!

Located at Bandon Beach Motel. Access to the beach from either end of the trail. Newly installed waterfowl and sea life identification signs along trail. Nice paved parking area. Beaches at appropriate viewing areas.

Check out the sunset. I noticed horse rides available but didn't sign up. Take the Beach Loop road. Amazing rock formations.

Gorgeous especially a wonderful place to visit during the summer. Great place to walk and wander. When tides are low beautiful marine life to see .Such a peaceful and fabulous gem. I haven't found many shells on the beach but occasionally sea glass and lots of small colorful stones are always to be found

We really enjoyed the afternoon beach walk with our little person. He enjoyed the tide pools and the adventure of the beach, driftwoods and little rivers. We took in the beautiful views and the fresh, crisp sea air.

A must see if you are in the area. A most wonderful view. Bring a jacket for the wind. A good hike to the beach but very enjoyable.
