- Amazing views of the ocean and the large rocks, each with a name and story. Nice walkways to the beach.

- We stumbled on this — so interesting to watch it be created, and beautiful to see it completed. We watched from the beach; later we wanted to see it from above but it was crazy busy above with cars, no parking, etc. It’s popular to view!Written August 6, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Bandon Beach is a very special and magical place. Every time you go, it looks a little different. The sand is hard making it the perfect spot for a power walk or a leisurely stroll. The sea stacks made every picture more interesting. Birders will love all the bird life. Families will love playing in the sand. Don’t miss this fantastic beach!Written August 22, 2021
- On the windswept coast. Nice walk along the bluff. Be ready for the wind. Cool even on a clear day, Nice stairs down to the beach.Written July 25, 2021
- One of the most beautiful Oregon coastlines. The waves and rocks make great pictures. You can also go down the beaches and watch the birds and seals enjoying life on the rocks. A must seen hidden gem if you are driving through Bandon!Written June 27, 2021
- Bandon is the only place on the Oregon coast that I prefer. The beach is great, as is the rock collecting. The wind was really not bad around the jetty.Written July 9, 2020
- The park was clean and the animals looked to be taken care of. The goats, donkeys, deer and sheep were a treat and wanted to play. The lions and tigers were mostly out and lying around their enclosures were clean and they look healthy. The monkey was very entertaining. All in all a great treasure of the small animal parks its not a huge zoo with lots of space for the animals but well worth the stop.Written November 8, 2023
- Came down after driving along the coast. What’s best thing about BANDON, “FREE PARKING”!!!!
Strolled up and down the street twice on two different days.
Beautiful Port!Written August 26, 2023
- The beach is one of the few you can drive on. Beware, though. This is a 4 wheel drive area only. People get stuck on the beach all the time and can easily lose their vehicles in the surf.Written September 4, 2019
- if you are staying at Bandon Beach Hotel or Tablerock with Kids, this city park near both properties, is a great option..if you are a disc golf enthusiast, they ave a course as well.Written September 9, 2020
- Quite a large area. The refuge protects the largest remaining tidal salt marsh within the Coquille River estuary. There is a viewing playform as well as a path that takes you through a short walk out into the marsh. We were only there about 30 minutes but saw Osprey, ducks, Canadian geese, Marsh Wrens and Swallows. Would love to return and stay much longer.Written May 20, 2019
