“Not Much There”

Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area
Ranked #6 of 51 things to do in Newport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We heard a lot about the Devil's Punch Bowl and to only go at high tide. We were there at high tide and it was disappointing. We found it was a waste of time.

This is a quick stop. We went at low tide & then returned at high tide to compare our pictures. Mother nature is amazing. FYI--there is also a nice winery right at the parking lot.

We arrived about and hour after high tide so maybe our timing was bad but I don't see what all the fuss is about.

We stopped, grabbed some delicious ice cream and walked around a bit. It was a pretty view and cool bowl but we were there during low tide so not much was going on. We didn't see anything else to do so we took off pretty quick.

It is worth a quick stop and my husband really loved the ice cream ($8.50 for two fun flavor ice cream cones, one of which was a waffle cone). We enjoyed Devil's Churn more just south of there and would recommend it over this if you only have time for one stop.

Nice, ample parking. Nice walking trails. Mo's restaurant on site. Great view of all of the surfers below. Large public restrooms. Stair access to the beach. Lots of exercise.
