Beautiful sight to see, for sure something for the whole family. Sadly the only days you can go up into the lighthouse is Thursdays from 2-5 pm aprox. Newly painted to protect from the salty sea winds.

The lighthouse is located within the confiens of Bullards Beach State Prk, and easy 10 minutes drive north from Bandon and immediately accessible as you cross onto the North side of the Coquille River -- follow the signs thru the Park to the dunes are and lighthouse. Easy parking and trail access to the lighthouse and dunes/beach area. Great photo op location.

The Classic lighthouse on the beach at the spit. Bring your camera. You'll get some great shots of the lighthouse through the driftwood with a little work. That is all.

The lighthouse itself is often open for an inside look and a tour to the light tower. Outside your walk most anywhere and enjoy a variety of interesting viewpoints of the light itself and surrounding scenery. If not too stormy you can walk out the end of the jetty at the river's mouth and enjoy the view north up Bullard's Beach. It is a great place for creative photography in almost any light.

I am so glad that they have finally opened the lighthouse and we are allowed to go up into the tower. I have visited this lighthouse many times in 32 years and have painted many pictures of it.
