This small state park can be enjoyed right from the parking lot and accessible paved trail with its interpretive signs, or you can take the wide staircase down to beach level and stoll along the beach for an up-close view of the dramatic rock formations.

Lovely beach to take a stroll. Free parking. If you don't like stairs, you might look for a different beach to visit.

I've been all over the Oregon coast many times and this is one of the most beautiful spots of all. The rock formations are amazing and seeing "Face Rock" is pretty cool. Bandon has a very quant "old town" area at the harbor.

Unfortunately the weather didn't agree with our brief visit to the beach (very overcast and rainy) but the beach was wonderful. Clean, picturesque and very enjoyable.

Face Rock Wayside is a great view of one of Oregon's most beautiful beaches. There are steps to walk down to the sand. Wonderful photo opportunity. A good place to view Circles in the Sand when they are creating art on the beach.

I've seen dogs and horses on the beach, and dogs at the viewpoint. I don't think there are any restrictions.
