NOTE: As of August 2020, the Devils Punch Bowl State Natural Area is open to limited use due to COVID-19. Please try to visit during non-peak times. Near Otter Rock explore this geological formation caused when two caves collapsed. Surfers and surf watchers energize this area. During winter storms, water from the restless ocean slams with a thundering roar into a hollow rock formation shaped like a huge punch bowl. The surf churns, foams, and swirls as it mixes a violent brew. The punch bowl was probably created by the collapse of the roof over two sea caves, then shaped by wave action. The park is a popular whale watching site and displays an intriguing geology. This is a scenic picnic spot atop the undulating rocky shoreline. Don't forget to explore the tidepools. Devil's Punch Bowl offers beach access and opportunities for picnicking, hiking, exploring the shoreline, and viewing sceneryShow more
