Bandon Sunset on the Oregon Coast

Bandon by the Sea is one of the cities along Oregon Coast's Highway 101 and a very popular vacation spot for California folks as well as Oregon locals from the inner valleys.

Bandon's actual official name is "Bandon by the Sea" but it is almost always called Bandon locally. Old Town is Bandon's charming downtown tourism district where you'll find several excellent restaurants shops, and lodging. A few miles south of town along the Bandon Loop Road are several more hotels like the Inn at Face Rock (nice rooms, golf, beach across the road) and the Windermere (right on the beach, more rustic rooms).

Several years ago world class golf came to Bandon with the Bandon Dunes, a Scottish style course that attracts golfers from all over the world.
