Another great stop along the Oregon coast. We were fortunate to have a sunny morning in Bandon on the beach, among many days of HEAVY rain. Perfect spot for sunshine. Beautiful... read more

Another great stop along the Oregon coast. We were fortunate to have a sunny morning in Bandon on the beach, among many days of HEAVY rain. Perfect spot for sunshine. Beautiful formations and beautiful beach. We could definitely relax here for several days sometime in the future.

Beautiful rock formations and a great place to walk on the beach. Kid friendly with easy beach access, fairly sheltered from the wind.

We just can't come to this overlook of beautiful Face Rock enough! It's mesmerizing to watch the waves come crashing into the beach and around the incredible rocks there. It's truly inspirational. Plus if you're lucky - you might get to view (and if your game to take the stairway down to the beach) and walk the fabulous "Circles in... More

Its a quick stop to see this formation and well worth the stop. Look up the stories about it. Sweeping views from the lookout give great opportunities for photos.

While visiting the Oregon coast, be sure not to miss this intriguing stop. The story behind this unique rock is as compelling as the natural beauty it possesses. A must see!

This is a beautiful, scenic, breathtaking place to visit. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe this place. The staircase to the beach is well maintained as are the paths for walking. This appears to be the place for dog walkers. There are posted signs describing the various birds and vegetation. Benches dot the landscape if you wish to... More

Face Rock really lives up the name. It really looks like a head and face coming from the sand. Beautiful beach and rock formations.
