    Nice Experience
    This stop was on my list of must sees. If you are coming from Newport then there is a sign off Coastal Highway 101. Once you make the turn there is not another sign so it’s easy to drive past. There is a sign coming from the opposite direction. Coming from Newport just remember to turn at the sign for MO’s Restaurant. The punch bowl was something to marvel and for those brave souls one can venture inside. Worth a quick stop. Parking can be tight.

    Worthwhile if you are in the area
    Went at low tide and saw people walking at the bottom. Worth the time to go see it. Tide pools much better at Yaquina Head Natural Area but the stair descent and climbing back up was good exercise!

    It was a really cool natural feature.
    This was a cool little area where you can look down into the "punchbowl" from above. The tide was in, so it had water. I know you can go down into it during low tide. We took pictures from above and checked out the little park that offered views down the coast. The area has a few shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, the ice cream place was closed for the evening. This is not a long stop, but worth 20 minutes to check out and get some photos if you are not trying to go down into it at low tide.

    Go at high tide!
    I was driving around in Oregon on US 101 stopping at the various state parks. I had been to this one many times, but usually high tide. This time the time was out! If I had planned ahead I either would have come at high tide or I would have come as the tide was going out , so that I could have hiked down to explore the cave.

Amazing view and fairly easy walk to location. Much more impressive to be in the bowl than to view it only. Make sure you check the tide times, so you don't get stuck in the bowl! There are a few shops nextdoor and a great place to eat. Worth the stop.

Worth the walk down to enter the bowl. Make sure you hit at low tide to enter. We went back to see it beginning to fill too...about 2 hours later.

If you were in the area around Depoe Bay, you should certainly allocate some time to do the Otter Loop and stop at the Devil’s Punchbowl. The punch bowl itself is a fascinating rock formation. You can get great pictures from the viewpoint above. And there are nice panoramic views of the coast line. There’s also plenty of free parking in the area. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed exploring this area. The Devils punch bowl was beautiful amongst the rolling waves and blooming flowers. There are walking paths and picnic tables in the area to use.
