You cannot visit Bandon without coming to the Face Rock viewpoint. The sun sparkling off the water and the waves foaming around the rocks are sights you have to take in with your own eyes; no photos can do this beauty justice.

Simply a beautiful view, so relaxing! I recommend wearing something over your ears if they are sensitive because its always windy and I end up with an earache if I leave mine exposed to the cold wind. Great photo op!

We have walked on many beaches and this is our favorite. Usually we stay at The Inn at Face Rock but this trip we stayed in town. What a glorious morning we had walking from town all the way past Face Rock for some dune hiking. We will go back again.

You will see Face Rock best around sunset. It really looks like a face. Take a walk on the beach and relax. There's a nice set of stairs that will take you down to the beach. It's a must see

The viewpoint is perfect for viewing the face rock, but this time the wind was daunting after a short time.

This is a huge rock located right off the beautiful Oregon Coast in Bandon. The name pretty much says it all as the rock has the profile of a face on it. There is also a beautiful beach to walk around on right in front of the rock

We were house shopping here and first saw the face from the view of a house were were looking to buy...then we went to the viewpoint park. This is such a neat place to see.....once you see the face in the rock it is all you see.....it is really cool when the fog is rolling in too.
