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!

The overlook juts out a bit, therefore you can see more to both he north and south. This is particularly a great place to view sunset.

I love this beach. It has rarely been crowded when I am there and the rocks against the ocean are beautiful. My dog can run like a dog and yes, I clean up after her. As a matter of fact you can tell most people do. Very little trash on the beach. The sunsets are gorgeous from here.

Such a great spot on Oregon's coast (although, there are many gorgeous places along the whole west coast). If you go in the winter, you might not be keen to swim, but it can still be wonderful--and much less crowded (though I haven't gone in the summer to know the difference in daily attendance). If you're in the area, it's... More

Views up and down the coast. Always rejuvenating to come here. Face Rock is an added plus; just being here is worth the journey.

Not a large parking area but it offers some very stunning views. In fact, for a hundred miles so, any place you can view the ocean, there will be a lot of texture. Sea stacks, offshore islands and wildlife. It's a great place to live.
