Coquille River Lighthouse, Bandon
(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
This page is dedicated to the Coquille River Lighthhouse (often referred to as the "Bandon Lighthouse"), located in the Bullards Beach State Park across the river from the Town of Bandon in Oregon State. The Lighthouse lies only a few hundred yards North and West of Bandon across the Coquille River, but the entrance to Bullards Beach State Park is actually 2 miles North of Bandon off Highway 101. From the Park entrance, the Lighthouse is reached along a winding road which cuts through dune areas to Bullards Beach. This is the only way to reach the lighthouse by vehicle. The Lighthouse can also be reached from the North via Bullards Beach itself.

  • Have been here in summer and fall, opened for viewing during summer months- not in November. What a lovely place. The beach is smashing (literally) to the north and the inlet runs into the river to th...  more »

  • This lighthouse is small, but easy to access. We took some great photographs of it in the afternoon light. Worth the time to go see it.

  • Lighthouses are always fun and this one is in a great location. There is a beach off to the north if you want to go beach-combing. Is is very untraveled so you get a good wild beach feel. There is a jetty that sticks out into the ocean from the lighthouse. It was relatively calm when were we there but the waves still splashed over the jetty. Loved it. The lighthouse was just opening when we were going to leave so we did not see the inside.
  • This is a very old lighthouse on the Oregon Coast, South Coast- Bandon. It's a fabulous view. They are working to raise funds to restore it. I hope they get it done. Built in late 1800's. It's worth seeing!
  • Great view from lighthouse. Has excellent beach surrounding lighthouse and can walk on to jetty.
  • This was my first time visiting the coast and a lighthouse. Top notch guides very informative.
  • Absolutely gorgeous. First lighthouse i went to as a child and will definetly bring my future children. A must see experience for anyone
