We were just driving around the area and kind of stumbled upon this great look out. It was kind of sweet, someone had written "Happy Birthday Mom" in the sand.

Walking back to our vacation rental, we passed this viewpoint and decided we would walk the rest of the way along the beach. It was the best and most peaceful part of our trip!

We very much enjoyed our trip along the Oregon coast. The day we traveled the beaches near Bandon it was a bit foggy but that just added to the charm. Beautiful!

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