Devil's Punch Bowl/Otter Rock

Below you is the spectacular Devil's Punch Bowl which was formed when the roof over two sea caves collapsed. You can watch the ocean waves crash through openings in the sandstone, continually sculpting this unusual formation.

At high tide, the waves churn through the openings below the water's surface, filling the cavern and creating the formation appropriately named Devil's Punch Bowl.

Enjoy these activities here: Tidepool Viewing, Marine Mammal Viewing, Bird Watching, Whale Watching, Shore Angling, Picnicking.
Devil's Punch Bowl / Otter Rock. This site is part of a Marine Garden. To your right is the southern tip of a Marine Garden that extends one mile north to the Otter Crest State Scenic Viewpoint. This large area offers many opportunities to enjoy and learn about marine ecosystems.

Because this area is designated as a Marine-Garden, no collecting of clams, mussels, or any other marine invertebrates is allowed, except the fishermen, who may collect single mussels for bait.
Please enjoy the tidepool creatures where they live and
be careful where you step. To learn more about his productive and fascinating marine ecosystem, please read the signs to your right overlooking this rich habitat.
