There are other attractive beaches up and down the Oregon coast, and while I did not have time to go further south, I found Bandon Beach with iconic Face Rock and sea stacks to be the most beautiful. It also attracted a fair number of photographers at sunset, though there was plenty of room for all of us to take our shots.
Head to Face Rock Scenic Viewpoint and take the short staircase to the beach. There are sea stacks to your right and left and you’ll see Face Rock almost in front of you. Blue hour and sunset are the best times to shoot here.
