Sunset on Bandon Beach, Oregon Coast, USA

You can walk for miles on the beaches of the Oregon Coast and enjoy the best sunsets in the world. We were there in the Fall (Autumn) when the temps are a little cooler and not so many tourists.

Bandon is well known for its cranberry production and The Annual Cranberry Festival takes place in the second weekend of September to celebrate the Cranberry harvest.

It’s also the home of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge, one of six nationally, providing protection to 1,853 small islands, rocks, reefs and two headlands.  These formations provide a sanctuary for birds, seals and sea lions.  The islands are closed to public access however, good viewing is possible from Coquille Point in Bandon and other locations suggested by the Oregon Coast Birding Trail.

More information can be obtained from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
