Most visitors come to enjoy Bandon's beautiful coastline, where the beach stretches for miles, and one can wander among the craggy rock formations and flocks of seagulls for hours without passing another person. In summer, the coast is often blanketed in a thick fog that deters all but the hardiest swimmers but is perfect for long, contemplative walks followed by hot cocoa with marshmallows.

Bandon's Old Town has plenty of fish-and-chips stands offering homemade clam chowder, fresh oysters and, of course, hot fish and chips. More adventurous types can catch their own supper with crab pots and fishing gear rented along the harbor .
