The coast of Oregon is beautiful and rugged. This is a great place to see some of the cool rock formations!

We happened upon this little viewpoint by accident. It was interesting to see the rock formations & a nice place to view the sunset.

The whole Oregon Coast is breathtaking, but Bandon has to be one of my favorite spot. The legend behind Face Rock is especially intriguing and worth the visit.

You can't appreciate this rock from the beach. This viewpoint allows you to see the outline of the woman's face on the rock. We would have missed this if we hadn't driven by the park and wondered what was Face Rock?

Be smart and watch the tides and wave conditions - but under normal conditions, fun beach areas to walk and explore

Even after driving up the coast from San Francisco, with view after view for days and days, we still found this area to be magnificent with delightful sights and photo opportunities. Don't pass this by without seeing the sea stacks and coastline views. Highly recommend...More

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