Our travels this year took us to the Devil's Punchbowl in late October. The crowds are smaller, but the fun is still there. You do need to watch for the signs along 101 so you don't miss the turn. The most important thing is to...More

The actual bowl may or may not be shooting water high into the air depending on the tides & winds. But it's so easy to get to and such a nice walk that it's worth at least 30 minutes exploring the area.

It was very foggy that day that we came to visit, but though not so clear, we still manage to take pictures but kind of hazy.

To get the most out of what you want to experience make sure you go at the right tide. If you go when the tide is coming in the bowl is filled with the ocean and can be spectacular. If you go when the tide...More

Another great place along the Oregon coast to stop and watch the power and majesty of the ocean as it throws itself against the rocky face of the cliffs. You stand and watch the action and become mesmerized by the shear splendor of the never-ending...More

There were lots of dogs there so I’m going to go with yes on that. Friendly tip - get the app for tide charts or get a tide chart from a ranger station. You can walk into the Punchbowl at low tide and then view it from above... More
