This is a beautiful, scenic, breathtaking place to visit. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe this place. The staircase to the beach is well maintained as are the paths for walking. This appears to be the place for dog walkers. There are posted signs describing the various birds and vegetation. Benches dot the landscape if you wish to... More

Face Rock really lives up the name. It really looks like a head and face coming from the sand. Beautiful beach and rock formations.

We stop here all the time and just watch the ocean and beautiful view. The sunsets are amazing here and a photographer's dream. I never get tired of the ocean and the rock formations that you can see from this park are beautiful. If you are in Bandon, be sure to stop here, well worth it.

The days spent in Bandon were during a heavy off-shore January storm that was driving in 30 foot breakers, smashing into the rocks, kicking up spray easily to 100 feet high. The sheer power and wildness of the scene was humbling and awe-inspiring. And face rock really does look like a face!

The coast of Oregon is beautiful and rugged. This is a great place to see some of those rock formations.
