We stayed at Windermere, so we could see Face Rock from the beach in front of Windermere. Is only a very short drive up the road, on our way to Old Town Bandon. Very scenic location; like it a lot.

Check ahead of time to see if you can time your visit with low tide and a chance to see Artist: Denny Dyke who creates his beautiful "Circles in the Sand" labyrinths along this beach. AMAZING!

At the suggestion of the staff at Tony's we drove to this beach area. It was beautiful on a VERY windy day. A must stop in Southern Oregon.

The view is always different depending on the weather. The viewpoint is very easy to get to see & restrooms are also available.

The sun was going down and about 20 people armed with iPhones to fancy camera rigs were in position. So we got our phones out too and got some beautiful photos to remember it by.

Nice place to park & look at a local landmark. Peaceful evening, light breeze, everyone seems respectful of others enjoyment & no one was screaming or yelling:) Nice conversational level, relaxing.

My family and I went there over Memorial weekend and even though it was cool there we still were amazed with Face Rock. A very relaxing sight. The beach was garbage free and beautiful.

If it weren't foggy. Weather forecasts aren't accurate for the coast. Views at Shore Acres State Park and Cape Perpetua have greater scope. This stretch of beach is beautiful and unique, but limited in scope.

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