CIrcles in the Sand, Labyrinths on the Beach

The intention of Circles in the Sand is to share love, joy and kindness.  Team Circles creates sand labyrinths surrounded by intricate designs and artwork.  We invite everyone to enjoy a walk on the sand path.
What to expect when you visit with Circles in the Sand: The times posted on our 
public schedule are when the artwork will be complete and ready to walk.  Creating the labyrinths usually starts about two hours before the scheduled Walk time.  For instance, if the time on the schedule is 8:00 AM that means that is when the path is open for walking; the team will be on the sand about 6:00 AM to start drawing the path.  Path will be walkable for two hours or more depending on the returning tide. Our home beach is Face Rock Wayside in Bandon, Oregon. Parking is limited and fills quickly. We will have staff at the entrance to ensure the parking lot does not overfill. Labyrinth - Walking Meditation - a unique morning walk on the beach.

Labyrinth master artist Denny Dyke creates "walkable art" which is a sandy path through an entire pattern with no wrong turns or dead ends. The path is further enhanced with detailed designs and is open for all to enjoy.

Subject to cancellation due to inclement weather, rain and/or high winds.
