A Day Traveling the Oregon Coast

So many great views of the ocean and the natural art that goes with it. Face Rock is one of many beautiful rocks, along the wonderful Bandon streets. Definitely a must see.

Headed out to Face Rock during an afternoon low tide. Weather was warm and very windy. The sand density was great for a long walk. Unfortunately, there were few opportunitiies for a serious agate search.

What a beautiful place! Sunset was amazing and watching the incoming tide crashing on the huge rocks was a real highlight.

Face Rock is one of the landmarks of Bandon. The whole area is so beautiful. This beach is our favorite one of all the ones on the Oregon coast.

This viewpoint provides great views of Face Rock and Bandon Beach. The coast of Oregon around Bandon has many other sea stacks that are also viewable from this location. Well worth the stop, however it is normally blustery and cold. Located south of town off Highway 101. There is also access to the beach from this location.

This was such a beautiful spot. We walked down the path to the beach and spent a couple hours checking out the caves and tide pools.
