Brief Directions

Several Bandon beaches boast sea stack formations, but the best one for photography is the beach opposite the Sunset Motel. There is no parking right at the beach, unless you stay at the motel. Then you can use their parking lot. if not, you'll have to park a bit away and hike back to this beach.

Notes

Bring your ND grad filters with you to balance the light in sky and terrain at sunset if you hope to combine those deep rich sunset colors in the sky and any detail along the shore. Or, alternatively, take multiple exposures and combine them later in post-processing to get the best light in the sky and some detail in terrain. Don't try to bring detail into the stacks, however. They are great as silhouetted shapes.

Description

The sea stacks off Bandon Beach are, in my opinion, the most photogenic along the Oregon Coast. A great time to catch them is at sunset, as silhouettes with a background of sunset colors in the sky.
