“Sunset in Bandon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Facerock in Bandon OR is a special viewpoint. The rock looks like the profile of a woman & has a wonderful legend around it. For those who do not want to go down the many steps down & back up to the beach this is a perfect place to view sunsets in gorgeous Bandon. I live on the North OR coast but Bandon is still one of my favorite beaches to visit. The rock formations are spectacular at sunset. If you visit this coastline do not miss the scenic coast drive of Bandon; you will be sorry.

“Great view of the old lady”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

This is a nice viewpoint that offers excellent views of Oregon Coast rocks and islands. There is also a nice trail to the beach for further explorations. This is a great spot for photographs and bird and seal watching.

“Indian Face Rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

You can access it along the beach, or by car down 101 hwy.
From the viewpoint there are stairs that take you down to the beach.
Fantastic view of the beach and the sea.
There is a big sign explaining the legend of the native woman and her dog and kittens.
A place to build some memorable moments after returning home.

“Great place for sunsets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Views of Face Rock and sea stacks. A short walk to an overlook or you can view the beach from your car in the parking lot.
