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

The Oregon coast definitely has its own personality, and this Face Rock says it all. :) If you are in the area, check out the unassuming Old Town Marketplace (Olde Towne Seafood & Market) for local grassfed beef, lamb, and pork, not to mention incredibly fresh seafood of all sorts. We were on an extended trip and thrilled to find... More

this is a really lovely walking path with spectacular views of the beaches, facerock, and the glorious sunsets! you can get down to the beach as well, but definitely take the time to walk along the viewpoint paths for the sweeping panoramas!

Being from the gorgeous state of California I guess I felt a little spoiled until I walked down this amazing beach. The grandeur of the rugged rocks jutting out of water is simply breathtaking!

Come here at sunset to enjoy a spectacular view of the beautiful Oregon coast. It is a great photo opportunity if you like big rocks in the ocean with breakers crashing into them. Simply gorgeous.

If the tide is high, you may not be able to get to the sand. View is amazing, lots of sea stacks and rock formations. If you are there for minus tide the tide pools are very fun and you can walk the tunnels if you don't mind wading a little. Quite often you will be the only one in... More

The legend behind Face Rock and the Native American Princess is interesting. Great place to catch a sunset. Beach access by stairs. Also a path (wheelchair access) that connects to other viewpoints. Beaches are a rock collector paradise.
