This natural area is a good example of how the ocean has carved out rock. My son loved watching the water come into the Punchbowl. The only downside was that there were some people parked there that looked like they were doing something illegal, so be careful.

Best time for full spectacle is high tide, but any time is worth seeing. It is a easy walk but you do need a sturdy walk and not mind if your shoes get a bit dirty. Don't forget your camera!
