This is a beautiful area to stop at but the small hike is definitely for the sure footed. Do not leave anything you value in the car. We were only here for 20 minutes and somebody broke into the back of my boyfriends pickup and stole a bag of clothing

This spot is best appreciated during high tide during a storm when there is lots of wave action, but then beware you'll probably be wind blown and make sure you wear some rain gear.

The punch bowl is worth a stop. You can see water churning. You will also see natural erosion as some of the old walkway has fallen. Picnic tables and restroom on site.

If you drive up or down the Oregon coast and you pass the Devils Punch Bowl you should really stop and take some pictures. It is a great view. A second reason to stop is it is also the home of theFlying Dutchman Winery. Has some of the best Blackberry and Raspberry wine on the coast. We always pick up... More

This area is simply beautiful. The scenery is among the best I've seen. They have many hiking trails in the area and the punch bowl itself is awe inspiring. Don't miss this one, it's well worth it.

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.
