The Magical Oregon Coast is blessed with many famous rock formations. There are two prominent Haystack Rocks. Haystack Rock in Pacific City and another in Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach. Thor’s Well located on Cape Perpetua near Yachats Oregon and Bandon Beach’s Face Rock are two of the most iconic rock formations on the amazing Oregon Coast. Located just off shore from the town of Bandon, this face shaped sea stack greets countless visitors who flock to this charming coastal beach town.
According to Native American lore, Ewauna, daughter of Chief Siskiyou was attacked by Seatka, evil spirit of the sea while swimming. Seatka attempted to make Ewauna look into his eyes. Ewauna defiantly gazed into the sky and was frozen in place by Seatka. So, according to legend, the face of Face Rock is actually that of Ewauna!
