Getting to the Rocky shore at Five Mile Point

Access to Five Mile Point is possible from both the north (Seven Devil’s SRS) and the south (Whiskey Run Beach). Access from the north is only possible at low tides and either access requires a walk along the beach to reach the intertidal area at the point. Seven Devil’s SRS is located approximately 10 miles north of Bandon, off Hwy 101 (follow signs to the state park and Whiskey Run). Before Seven Devils (approximately one mile off 101), turn left onto Whiskey Run Road and follow the road until it ends. There is a small parking area but no on-site facilities.
