Bandon South Jetty, Bandon, Oregon

The Bandon South Jetty Light is an automated beacon and fog signal that sits on a stone breakwater on the South side of the Coquille River where it enters the Pacific Ocean in the town of Bandon, Oregon. This small light replaced the Coquille River Lighthouse in 1939. The Coquille River Lighthouse is on the North Side of the Coquille River just upstream from the South Jetty Light.  Photos taken in June 2012.


  1. Do you know that there are lighthouses for sale in the United States?

    1. Yes, in Canada too. The governments are saying that with today's modern technology (GPS, etc.) they are redundant. Not everyone agrees, but when there is no extra money around, they look for things to cut. Fortunately, in many places, local governments, historical societies and associations have taken them over and saved and preserved them. Thanks for the link. Cheers, Neal
