Fresh ocean air and dramatic coastlines in Bandon

This tiny fishing town along Oregon's coast was named after one of the early settler's hometowns in Ireland. The clean ocean air, rugged beaches and freshly caught seafood draw in travelers every summer. Those in the know are booking up Bandon vacation rentals in the shoulder seasons, when the weather can still be delightful and the hiking footpaths, golf courses and waterfront eateries are far emptier. Even winter can be an experience if you layer up to keep warm and look out over the dramatic storms which beat against the Oregon shores.

Things to do

10 blocks of Old Town fun in Bandon

Away from Oregon's beautiful nature, a good introduction to Bandon is the Old Town, 10 blocks of restaurants, retail spaces and museums, including the Bandon Historical Society, where you can learn about the town's history. When you stay in a Bandon vacation rental, you'll find yourself ambling down through the charming main avenue, diving into independent galleries and boutique shops more often than you'd imagine. It's hardly surprising that the menus here are dominated by fresh catches of the day. Duck into one the seafood shacks for shucked oysters, whole steamed crabs and fish tacos.

Activities

Bandon is where family memories are made

Bandon has always been a family-friendly spot and the outdoor adventures you can have along the coast will create memories that you'll treasure for many years. If you've brought your bicycles, you can spend sunny mornings riding along the quiet country lanes. Alternatively, dust off your walking shoes for a hike along the footpaths that follow the beaches, the river banks and around the lakes. Too much effort? All your need for some family fun is a bait and lines to drop into the water to haul in crabs. Whatever you catch, take back to cook up a seafood feast at your Bandon vacation rental.

Weather

Look beyond Bandon's summer season

The consistently bright skies and sunniest weather hit Oregon between July and August and pave the way for outdoorsy types to scratch their hiking itch. The hot climes draw in the biggest influx of travelers to Bandon vacation rentals, so be sure to book up early if you're planning a summer getaway. The shoulder months see a drop in rental prices and if you catch the right time, the climate can be rather agreeable. The beaches might be off limits, bar bracing walks with your furry friend, but don't discount the winter, when rock-bottom prices and the lack of other travelers offer complete solitude.

Natural features

Tidal marshes and wildlife refuges in Bandon

It doesn't matter what time you visit, there'll always be birdwatchers walking along the shoreline with their binoculars, eagerly catching glimpses of sea birds and waterfowl. The salty marshes and rivers provide unique habitats for a diverse list of nesting and migratory avifauna. A little further inland from your Bandon vacation rental, you may very well spot one of the birds of prey circling overhead, keeping a beady eye out for prey, or hear the call of songbirds. If you're a certified birder a good place to star is the Bandon Marsh and Ni-les'tun wildlife refuges.
