Inscription. Below you is the spectacular Devilís 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 waterís surface, filling the cavern and creating the formation appropriately named Devilís Punch Bowl.

Enjoy these activities here: Tidepool Viewing, Marine Mammal Viewing, Bird Watching, Whale Watching, Shore Angling, Picnicking.

Devilís 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.
