Glittering, swirling saltwater spits and foams inside as it funnels in from the sea through a small arched doorway. The sight of Devil’s Punchbowl is truly, positively mesmerizing. Let’s take a look at one of the most extraordinary natural wonders in Oregon, shall we?

Yes! One of Oregon’s most marvelous treasures, there are numerous beaches dotting all 363 miles of the Oregon Coast and the best part is, they are all free and open to the public. That means endless opportunities for beachcombing, whale watching, hiking, exploring, or simply reveling in the beauty of the Beaver State’s stunning shores. One of our favorite beaches is a bit of a hidden gem: Rockaway Beach. This expansive beach is marked by a pair of striking black rock formations, known as the Twin Rocks. These rocks anchor the coastal town, acting as a center from which everything stems. A people’s beach through and through, you’ll find all sorts of events happening at Rockaway Beach. The annual Kite & Art Fest is definitely a fan favorite, and it’s delightful to see the skies full of winsome, colorful kites. It’s one of Oregon’s very best beaches!
