My title says it all! The view of the ocean is spectacular! Easy drive from Lincoln City! Needless to say, take you camera, and for those that are of hardy stature, make your way to the beach below.

This was really nice... we just stopped in passing but there were some well manicured pathways and beautiful natural waterways to see.

This is a great stop in the parks system. We, unfortunately, were there at low tide, and the sight was less impressive. The area includes nature trails, a great visitor center with publications and restrooms, and friendly rangers. I like the area and will plan another visit.

We decided to stop and see the beautiful scenery, but one of the highlights of our trip was feeding the squirrels. They are very tame and will approach fearlessly to eat peanuts, even climbing up in our laps. If you are planning to stop, bring a bag of peanuts with you and you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful, a gorgeous view of the ocean and a great beach. Kids enjoyed beach combing, and playing in the surf. A must see spot!

No Oregon Coast drive would be complete without a stop at Devil's Punch Bowl. The tide was out so there was very little action but the view was still spectacular.

You need to see this on a stormy day @ high tide, otherwise its just a big hole in the rocks. Nice views as you walk around though. A good place for a quick highway stop.

Spectacular ocean view overlooking a natural sea cave and surfers beach. And there is a small winery literally right across the street

Very windy, but beautiful on a clear day. Bring binoculars, we saw whales right off the coast! Be sure to take the stairs down to the beach on the North side of the park to get access into the punch bowl itself; beautiful rocks and tidal pools.

Quite windy later in the day but very beautiful! Took lots of great pictures and watched the surfers in the water below.
