Bandon, Oregon
W E L C O M E     T O

Bandon-by-the-sea is a small, charming coastal town. Its sights and shops are almost all within walking distance of the renovated Old Town section, which makes it the perfect place for strolling, shopping and dining while you're on holiday. The Old Town area is just off Highway 101, and includes a collection of art galleries, curio shops, restaurants, and the local Chamber of Commerce. It's right next to the boat basin, so it's easy to walk down to the basin for a breathtaking ocean view.

Golfers can play world class golf at Bandon Dunes Golf Course, located just north of Bandon, off of Highway 101. The Dunes has four different courses, as well as a practice center, and on site dining and lodging. The Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes and Bandon Trails courses were designed using the natural landscapes and vegetation of the Oregon coast. They offer challenges for every golfer, as well as pristine ocean views. The Old Macdonald course design is based on golf architect's C.B. Macdonald's work, and is a classic course in a breathtaking beach setting.

The Beach Loop is a popular road tour. It winds along the coast near many craggy sea stacks, including the Garden of the Gods, Table Rock, Cat and Kittens Rock and Elephant Rock. The most impressive of these is known as Face Rock. Local legend says that Face Rock is the face of an Indian maiden that was frozen into stone by an evil spirit. The Cat and Kittens Rock are her animals that were thrown into the sea and turned to stone by the same evil spirit.

Interesting shops in 19th century buildings, spectacular coastal scenery, salmon and bottom fishing, windsurfing and just walking along the ocean beach all make Bandon-by-the-sea your perfect coastal vacation destination!

For scenery, location and beauty, Bandon is a treasure to visit.
