What a view

The Oregon coast is beautiful, but this area maybe the best. Nice beaches intermingled with interesting rock formations. Nice facility.

Large parking lot with great views of Face Rock and other sea stacks on Bandon Beach. There is also beach access via a staircase (not difficult); at low tide you can explore several caves in the rocks but keep an eye on the tide.

This is well worth the stop. On the low tides you can find tide pools. You can also explore the rock near shore during high tide.

he shoreline near Face Rock has many pull-outs and parking lots, each one different from the next. My wife was thrilled to be able to see the face after it was pointed out. All in all a nice place.

Nice bike ride along beach loop drive goes by several state parks. The face rock is great to see. At low tide you can walk out to the rocks and see caves revealed. Quiet beach, good to watch the sunset here.

One of the beautiful views of the Pacific ocean. Most amazing sunsets. Don't be surprised to see several professional photographers set up waiting for the perfect shot. Even all of us tourists with cameras and phones getting some great pictures, making great memories forever. Plenty of parking and seating areas to just sit and take in the beauty.

Easily accessible with a quick walk down from the parking lot. One of the more interesting stops along the Oregon shoreline, with numerous stunning natural rock and cave formations.
