Beautiful Beach area with a large colony of Sea Lions!

It is all about the weather here. Take your photos whenever you can. Day one was beautiful and clear. Day two the fog rolled in and it felt like something from a scary movie!

BW Face Rock is a must stop between our Oregon home and our family in California. We plan our stops around this destination. We highly recommend staying at Face Rock. Consider staying at the facility and spending a couple of days in Bandon area.

Takes your breath away. Easy access, easy walking, great views. Walkable from some hotels. Picture worthy.

Right down the road from our hotel, this viewpoint gives you a spectacular look at the Pacific ocean overlooking the beaches.

This is a beautiful scenic overlook with great views of the ocean and Face Rock. I had time to walk down the path to the beach and spent time wondering, watching the birds, picking up smooth rocks, listening to the surf...life doesn't get much better than this.

Have come here twice. This shot was at night, in May, on my cell. Can't imagine how beautiful it would have looked on my real camera. She looked like she was weeping, unlike the previous visit.

The beach in Bandon is beautiful and seldom has a lot of people. Today I walked 6 miles and found only a few people along the way. Today the seal pups are on the beach so hopefully everyone respects the pups space.

These beaches are incredible with all the big rocks and the waves crashing off of them. Face Rock is fun because of the story behind it. It's a great place to check out and walk around. We heard it was beautiful for sunsets, but when we stayed it was foggy and we missed it. But, I do recommend to anyone... More
