We stop here all the time and just watch the ocean and beautiful view. The sunsets are amazing here and a photographer's dream. I never get tired of the ocean and the rock formations that you can see from this park are beautiful. If you are in Bandon, be sure to stop here, well worth it.

When you gaze upon face rock, it looks like lady in the sea coming up for air. The rest of the boulders just lend a beautiful rugged look to the Oregon coast.

The days spent in Bandon were during a heavy off-shore January storm that was driving in 30 foot breakers, smashing into the rocks, kicking up spray easily to 100 feet high. The sheer power and wildness of the scene was humbling and awe-inspiring. And face rock really does look like a face!

The rock formations off the beach are phenomenal. This is nature at its best and a must see. We will definitely be back.

The coast of Oregon is beautiful and rugged. This is a great place to see some of those rock formations.

Beautiful place to pause or to walk on the beach. Winter walks can be solitary, but crowded in summer.

The coast of Oregon is magnificent. Face Rock is lovely, Coquille Lighthouse & the ride south along the coast - all are not to be missed!
