Make sure you wear closed toe shoes if you decide to take a tour of this lighthouse (something that was not enforced at some other lighthouses up the coast). There are caretakers - one lady who works the lower level, running the book/souvenir shop and a man (husband?) who jovially welcomes people, in groups of 4, as they make their... More

Bandon is an interesting and charming place to visit. The beach and lighthouse--very historic--are easily accessible. Quite often there are very few people on the beach, especially if it's windy, so it's great to see dogs running freely and happily. It can be quite windy, though. Nearby Bandon is a lovely little town. Don't miss out the cheese factory! My... More

Here is an opportunity to see a lighthouse on the Oregon coast. It provides a nice view of Bandon across the river and the lovely Coquille River and Pacific Ocean. It only takes a few minutes to see it, and it is a nice photo op.

This was one of my favorite lighthouses on the OR coast, We stayed at Bullards Beach Camground and were able to walk to lighthouse. The volunteers are so informative and you can schedule a time to walk to top of lighthouse.

This was one of the lighthouses on our must-see lighthouse tours in southern Oregon. It not my favorite because it is non-working lighthouse, but still a lot of history surrounding this site. I took a tour to the lense room, but without the lense, which was removed when the lighthouse was decommissioned, too bad, that would have made it a... More

Easy access through Bullards Beach State Park ... well marked roadway. Lighthouse appears to be going through renovations. We got there at 5:30pm just to miss the opportunity to visit (11-5 daily within season (May-Oct). The beach is also quite scenic with drift wood.

We liked the location and historical significance. The adjacent beach was great for a long walk.... lots of driftwood, birds, rocks, etc.

Park in the Jetty parking lot. From there you have great photo ops of the lighthouse, seagulls, the ocean and the various rock formations. Many times is it quite windy and foggy so hopefully you will visit on a clear and not so breezy day, but even if it is, it is worth stopping. It is a short walk to... More

On this visit the lighthouse was open and visitors could climb to the top. The beach is easily accessible from the parking area.
