We spent about an hour here but it should have been a whole day! So many rock formations to see! We really liked Face Rock and crawling through the slot access to the Cathedral.

Don't miss a chance to have an elevated view of the beach. Hopefully the fog isn't in, on a bright day it glitters. Can be windy!

Windy and sunny the day we were there. I took lots of photos and hope to return another time to spend more time.

Walked the beach for a hour or so. Tons of beach pebbles to admire. Warm day and minimal winds. Which is nice. Little tunnels to explore.

There are tons of scenic viewpoints all over Oregon, but you don’t want to miss this one. Interesting and unusual.

No other beaches on the northwestern coastline beat-out the Bandon beaches for view, interesting rock structures, walks, or daydreaming. Sunsets are very often absolutely incredible!

2131 Beach Loop Rd, Bandon, OR 97411 Is the personal residence across the street from the viewpoint. Use this address to find the viewpoint. Is is not in the middle of town as shown on the map.

You can go to the lookout on Beach Loop Rd and see it well if you don't want to explore on foot. It is beautiful.

But I'd also like to give a shout-out to Circles in the Sand, who we've just happened upon 3 - 4 times now on our regular visits to Bandon. Check the website for his schedule, and if he happens to be "drawing" when you're at...More

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