Coquille River Lighthouse, Bandon

4.4
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Bandon
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.

    This lighthouse is very picturesque along with the area that it is in. Rocky and rugged. We didn't actually get to go into the lighthouse but just seeing it was a treat. The harbor in front of it was ...  more »

    I loved this lighthouse! It's fun and interesting to photograph. Also, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The lady talked for a long time about the history of it. I'm happy that we visited.

    Always worth a visit whether staying in Bandon or just cruising the 101. The lighthouse is right on a jetty that you can walk out on (be careful of waves). Bring warm clothes even in summer. Can get very windy.

    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!
