You can't find another place in this world with so many dramatic views: Devils Punch Bowl, Devil's Churn, Thor's well, and Blow Horn, you can see all these within one day. If you want a treat to your eyes, welcome to Oregon Coast.

Stop by and look at Cook's Chasm and the powerful blowhole nearby. Nice hiking trails, great views, and nice flat nearby beaches.
