Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint, Bandon

#1 of 25 in Things to do in Bandon
Must see · Geologic Formation · State Park
Stand at Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint to admire the sights of the coast and the facial features on the massive rock protruding from the sea. From the viewpoint, look for the rock's profile as it seemingly gazes skyward. Take the stairs down to the clean beach for more views and rock pools to explore at low tide, but wear shoes with good tread in case of slippery areas. During your visit, keep in mind the Native American legend about the site, which tells of a woman's voice in the wind. Picnic tables and restrooms are available on site.

  • Yes, the rock looks like a face. This wayside is easy to get to. There's plenty of parking and the view is good.  more »
  • What a beautiful place. Head out at low tide and see some great tide pool creatures. If you are lucky, fog just adds to the beauty. Long exposue photo ops galore.  more »
  • Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠAbsolutely Stunning Seascapes! We walked on the Beach for hours & collected Seashell's, Laughs & smiles! We stopped in at " Inn at Face Rock Creamery" & had wine tasting & 7 Devil's Beer. ( hubby did. I was DD) If you get a chance to stroll down the Scenic Beach drive, stop off @ Pelican Bay Road & catch a Sunrise or Sunset on these Beautiful Beaches on the Oregon Coast! They surely do not disappoint:)
  • I came here to see Circles in the Sand. What a wonderful experience! even though there were many people on the beach, it did not feel crowded as at low tide there is a lot of exposed beach. Lots of great tide pools for observing marine wildlife at low tides. An easy climb up and down and great views from the picnic tables above the beach. A very easy walk from the Sunset Oceanfront Hotel.
