The Old Town area of Bandon features a collection of art galleries, curio shops, restaurants, and the local Chamber of Commerce. It is located right next to the boat basin, where visitors can enjoy a view of the ocean.

BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Old Town encompasses about six blocks between the harbor and highway. You can watch artists at work, poke around galleries, and check out local restaurants. Interestingly, most of the town that exists today was established after a 1936 fire that destroyed a good deal of Bandon.
  • The Boardwalk is the place for walking, fishing, and crabbing. You must have a crabbing license, however, and everything else you'll need can be found at the nearby bait and marine shops.
  • Be aware that kids 12 and younger have to wear PFDs (personal flotation devices) while on the crabbing dock; you can rent them in the same stores where you pick up your crabbing supplies.
