Community Overview

Our Community

A Great Place to Live and Work

Bandon – where the Coquille River meets the sea – and the neighboring areas of Oregon’s South Coast, boast miles of white-sand beaches where towering sea stacks outnumber people. A vital community with a lively Old Town, a new and already acclaimed Face Rock Creamery, giant sculptures created from plastics and other ocean debris, and the world renowned and still growing Bandon Dunes Golf Resort are just some of our drawing cards.

Snow and freezing conditions are a rarity. Bandon’s average temperatures are in the 50s and 60s the year-around. A coastal breeze refreshes, and sometimes churns into a tempestuous storm, a glorious sight to behold. The area is reminiscent of Ireland, from where its founding settlers came by sailing ship and dubbed the town Bandon after its sister city in Cork. They brought the thorny, yellow-flowering gorse along too.

It’s a friendly community, enticing to families, retirees and entrepreneurs. An expanding golf mecca, the Bandon area sports river, lake and ocean fishing. You can throw a crab pot into the river from the Port’s dock or a boat, go fishing or clamming and return to harvest delectable Dungeness crab to add to your meal.
