We stopped by earlier in the day during low tide just to have a look. Then went back about 3:15pm when it was supposed to be at high tide & we were disappointed. While the morning was calm the afternoon was very windy. I'm sure this spot is much more impressive during a storm, that's if you want to stand... More

All my times up and down the Oregon coast I have missed this hidden treasure. We saw it when it was terribly windy and the parking lot was a crazy mess. Apparently the town had a parade and other things going on so we were totally unaware. Worth seeing in person. Just beautiful!!

Neat area with plenty of parking. Good walkways along the fence to get a good vantage point. Amazing views and photo ops.

This is one of the places you have to at least stop and look over the wall to see it. It is a big sea cave where the top fell in.

Go when there is a low tide to see star fish, sea en enemies, small fish, crabs of all sizes, muscles, and lots of sea plants. Go up top during high tide and see a great show in one of mother natures amazing formations. Favorite stop on the shore!

This was a beautiful stop. Great views! Staying for 6 hours or being close enough to return to see it at both high and low tide would be perfect You would then have the opportunity to see the punch bowl full during hightide and then to walk down into the punch bowl and enjoy the tide pools during lowtide.

I'm back from my first trip to the Oregon Coast. And I realize all my favorite photos are from Devils Punchbowl! My husband and I spent the whole day here. Great view, great tidepools. This Is The Oregon Coast !!!

I have visited this attraction several times and have never seen it "punch" which is a bit disappointing. However, the area itself is gorgeous and looks down on a beach that has a nice little waterfall tucked away in the SE corner. Parking is somewhat limited, but there are picnic tables to lunch.

What an amazing natural wonder! I was there on a gorgeous clear day (the day before was cloudy and had 60mph winds and I almost got blown over!), but the vista gives a 360 degree view of the coast and if you look straight down, it gives a great view of the the Punchbowl. Bonus: there are tons of friendly... More

We were driving down the coast. Running late because I had to stop so many times to take pictures but it ended up working in our favor. I had seen so many pictures of the punch bowl and it was beautiful but you don't need as much time if you're driving through. We were only there for about an hour... More
