Bandon Quick Look

We can’t wait to see you in Bandon!  If you’re planning a trip, here are some packing tips to make your stay more enjoyable.

Keep it casual. Unless you have a formal event, leave your fancy attire at home. Our shop owners and restaurateurs want you to feel comfortable, whether you’re strolling on the beach or dining out.

Layer up. Bandon has a temperate climate, but temperatures can vary between the waterfront and inland areas. Don’t be fooled by morning fog or cloud cover. Consider wearing a hat and sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s rays.

Good news for dog lovers! Our beaches welcome furry friends, and many retail shops are pet-friendly. Just remember to bring a leash and keep your pet secure, as we have a leash law in place. Service animals are also welcome in areas where customers are allowed, and our chamber business members are knowledgeable about ADA regulations.

To secure the best options, make sure to book your lodging in advance. Bandon’s hotels, vacation rentals, and campgrounds tend to fill up quickly, especially during the summer and winter holidays.
