Bandon Beach is a wide and wild public beach. Its sands form a relatively flat surface as they head towards the Pacific, making them suitable for all sorts of games, from beach football to tag. Commonly referred to as Bandon State Natural Area, the beach is probably best known for its sea stacks - thin slivers of rock that rise majestically out of the surf and have all manner of names linked to their appearance. Most notable of these are Face Rock, Elephant Rock and Komax.
The beach and rocks provide the ideal habitat for several species of sea bird, and harbour seals too, which can be seen sunning themselves on the shoreline. A beach for nature and landscape lovers, Bandon Beach offers the chance to enjoy a picnic, comb the beach for treasures, or await the stunning sunsets that this area of Oregon presents.
Bandon Beach can be accessed by the jetty near the Old Town or Kronenberg County Park, China Creek or the Devil’s Kitchen along Beach Loop Road. There’s generally plenty of parking.
