A nice place to be right up to a lighthouse. The beach is more narrow than other Oregon Coast beaches, but this beach in a nice place to roam for agates. Flushing facilities are definitely a plus! We drove up during a storm, so seeing the waves crashing so close was an experience.

After spending some time at a funeral many of us went to the lighthouse and walked on the beach. A few kites were out on a very windy day. Broken shells and sand dollars along the way.

Unless you really like to get up close there is a better view from town and you don't have to drive 6 miles to see it.

The lighthouse has knowledgable volunteers to give you the history of the lighthouse, it's keepers and some ocean and river shipping. The views from the top are awesome. Scrambling around the rocks around the lighthouse and enjoying the beach will fill your afternoon!

We are a family that travels on a budget and we have visited the Oregon Coast twice. We love the cute little Coquille Lighthouse and were excited to get to go inside of it. Our favorite thing to do is find shell fossils along the beach and climb on the driftwood. Bullards Beach has a great campground that is in... More

Beautiful old non-working light house. Very well taken care of and a land mark for this area. Beautiful Oregon beachs surrond this building on the North Jetty and go on forever for hours of mind-less walking and mind clearing activities.

This lighthouse can be seen from both near the Bandon, Oregon Marina/Harbor and close up in Bullard's Beach State Park. My photos at both locations were fantastic. The driftwood piled up on a nearby beach made the scene even more surreal. I was fortunate to hit this near sundown as the views took my breath away. I was even more... More

Cute little lighthouse, fun tour, lots of interesting information. Be sure you wear closed toed shoes, they won't let you go on the tour with open toed shoes.

This lighthouse was first lit in 1896, and was the last lighthouse constructed on the Oregon coast. It is located in Bullards Beach State Park, a nice park that offers equestrian access & great campsites. We visited just before dusk and enjoyed the beautiful sunset.
