A walk through the Labyrinth at Bandon Dunes

Set amid the many hiking and walking trails at Bandon Dunes is a labyrinth, an overhead replica of an elaborate path created in Greek mythology by Daedalus for King Minos of Crete, with the intent of holding the Minotaur of Knossos.

The labyrinth takes on a different meaning in modern times, a pathway for meditation and introspection. Bandon is a place that inspires this kind of deep thought, and so Bandon Dunes co-founder Mike Keiser had one installed along the trails as a memorial to co-founder Howard McKee, who found labyrinths of various designs around the world fascinating.

The path is a replica of a maze on the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France.
