Besides the beauty of surf crashing around rocks, this area offers several interesting natural phenomena.

Stopped in here on our way up the coast. Very impressive. Was a little chilly but still very neat to see.

First off, be sure you have a sweater or jacket, hard breezes off ocean onto cliff. The Devils punchbowl is a nice natural cave like area. Recommend going at high tide, we were there at low tide. But still amazing.

Make sure you put it in your GPS as Devil's Punchbowl State Natural Area. Watch for the sign. It looks like a regular side street but keep going. It is at the end of the street. You will pass the picnic area, restrooms... More
