This is an incredible spot to visit along the Oregon Coast. You see this from 500 feet and it's a one of a kind spot.

I drove down from Oceanside, where I am staying for a month. It was a gorgeous sunny day in October, and I was on a mission to see seals. I talked to some locals and they directed me to this area. What a beauty! The views are great, and the beach is a wonderful place to explore! I walked to... More

Go here at low tide and you can explore acres and acres of tidepools. You will see creatures you hardly see anywhere else and with luck you might also see seals resting and waterfalls and floats and..... What a place. Just where good shoes and old clothes because all that seaweed on the rocks is really slippery! And if you're... More

Pictures don't do Devil's Punch Bowl any justice - we were totally surprised by the scale of it in person! The picnic areas are really beautiful. There's a handful of very small tourist shops (including one which does wine tasting) by the parking area, and just beyond that you can find a way down to the beach and, if it's... More

Small parking area with a picnic tables, paths, stairs down to the beach, and a viewing area. The punchbowl will appear much different at low and high tides.

My husband and I spend two days driving the length of the Oregon coast and this was a highlight of our trip. There were a few gray whales out in the ocean which we watched from the observation area for a bit while we spoke to some of the locals. The tide was low and we were directed to the... More

Definitely worth a stop. The day we were there the weather was beautiful so it was so picturesque! We had a picnic of clam chowder and shrimp from Mo's that was located in the area.

It was a great little stop along the coast. Definitely worth stopping for. Beautiful views and could be fun to hike down for photography.

This is a great place to view a natural wonder. I do have to mention that there were people climbing down in the punch bowl which is not a safe thing to do. It is always sad to see people doing things that they obviously should not be doing. If they get in trouble, it is tax payers that have... More

We drove the coast from Seattle to San Francisco. It was definitely worth our stop here. We got to watch the tide coming in. The view was just amazing.
