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.

When in the Bandon Beach area, stop at the Face Rock Viewpoint to see the face and read the story behind it. If you have more time, walk down the stairs to enjoy a national treasure of a beach!

Even on a cloudy Oregon day, you simply can't beat Bandon. I love just wandering around the rocks, climbing between them, watching the tide come in, going up the cliff and just taking it all in.

The Oregon coast is Spectacular everywhere you look to say the least. However the coastal views along the Bandon Coast are the BEST. I mean the "BEST IN THE WORLD"...AMAZING

Worth a look, one of only two public parking areas. Great view but for nice stairs to beach go about a half mile or a little more back.

We enjoyed an early morning walk along the beach. We went prior to low tide and were able to see starfish on the rocks and in a tide pool and walk around the large rocks. There was some fog preventing us from taking a great picture of the Face rock. There is stair access to the beach.

Words alone cannot describe the magnificent Oregon coastline. Bandon has alot of its beauty .The beach is so clean and you can walk for miles. Lots of sea birds but beware of the gusty winds and sometimes fog.

This is a quick side trip that you must see! No words can describe the majestic views of the Pacific Ocean here.
