This is an amazing thing to see. Well worth the reasonable pit stop time you'll spend. Best to time it when the tide comes in for full effect.

We went out in the wind and rain to check this out..it was glorious. I recommend this to anyone passing by. I could have sat there all day taking pictures and video of the churn and still wanted to stay longer. Must see!

There is no more to say that hasn't been said here already. Just go! The hike is possibly a little much for some. I'd say its comparable to descending and climbing about 6-8 flights of stairs. If you can do it, it's definitely worth the climb! While you're in the area, make sure you stop by Thor's Well, just a... More

This was a pleasant place to stop while driving down the coast. The hike down was fairly steep but it was well worth it.

This is one of the highlights of this gorgeous part of the Oregon Coast. It's an easy walk from the car park to this natural wonder. You can watch the powerful waves crash into the coast in all of nature's fury. Make sure you stop to see this even if it's raining or the wind is howling, as it often... More

Spectacular natural site, mesmerizing, and worth the trip to see. We were there on an overcast day, and despite the weather, this was a highlight of the natural beauty of the Oregon coast. Definitely recommended.

This is spectacular. The path to see this is paved and an easy and well worth it to do. When the waves come in and crash against the rocks, the view is amazing. Definitely worth the stop to see. There are many different places to stop and view along the path. Your stay totally depends on how long you enjoy... More

This is one of those places that you have to see yourself. Nobody could possibly give you a written review that would come close to doing it justice! Be sure to stop and see this marvelous natural wonder. We were just passing by and needed a rest stop, otherwise we would never have known what we missed. Stop in to... More
