Great beach combing, tide pools

This beach is a great place to walk in low tide. You can walk around the big rocks and find some interesting tide pool creatures.

Wished we had more time to enjoy the breathtaking vistas but we were en route to California and only had time to stop and take pictures. If you do nothing else in Bandon, visit here!

Good view point for Face Rock. Requires a little bit of walking but not a lot. There are stairs to get to the beach is you want a closer view of the rocks but the stairs are long.

The views of the coast and rock formations are breathtaking. Make sure to walk down to beach, but wear long pants and jacket. You can feel a bit sand blasted on high wind days.

The Bandon area is one not to miss if you are traveling the Oregon coast. We love it here. Having lived on the Oregon coast for 9 yrs, there's always something new to explore.

This area is lovely, except the day we were there, there was too much fog, to really be able to appreciate the view, I want to come back.

Stopped here to take a quick rest to get coffee and continue to head down home to Southern California. We ended staying for hours. The coast line is amazing! One of the more scenic in Oregon. It would be a shame if you were to drive thru here without taking it in.

This was an awesome place for pictures at sunset! We enjoyed walking through the caves along the beach. Great views above the beach also.

We loved this beach loop so much we ended up making an impromptu overnight stop here. Nice beach--long with so many angles to take great pictures (what I enjoy doing), and fun for the kids. Not enough wind that day for kites, but the kids loved it! Gorgeous!

It is a treat to see the circles in the sand on Friday and Saturday mornings. It is usually done by 9-9:30 AM.
