Scenery was terrific,park was clean, best time to go I think would be high tide. We were there during low tide,but still a must see. place is a little difficult to get to if your not paying attention to the signs.

Devil's punch bowl, when the tide is out, is extrodinary. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. If you are into surfing this is the place and they even have a wash station up top so you can rinse off all of the sand you will be covered in from playing at the beach!
Watch out for little sand beetles in the water, they bite!

This was a little tricky for us to find. Park at the lot by the Devil's Punch Bowl sign, then walk down the street, past the yellow Dead End sign. You'll see a tail on the left going down that will take you to a beach, which you can get to the bowl by going all the way to the left. We went when the tide was coming back in, which I do not recommend, but it was really cool in there!

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.
