Attractions near Depoe Bay, OR
Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area
Along the Oregon Coast, the Devils Punchbowl is a large bowl naturally carved into the rock and opened into the Pacific Ocean and is a favorite among Depoe Bay attractions. This landmark is very interesting to watch as the waves come in and out of the bowl swirling and foaming inside as the water vigorously moves.
Located in Otter Rock, this is a must see landmark whether you’re driving through or looking for a longer day activity.
The Cape Foulweather historical landmark is located approximately 3 miles south of Depoe Bay and 9 miles north of Newport, just a 6 minute drive from Channel House. The building at Cape Foulweather was the first man-made structure at “Bald Knob” (the flat summit on the hill) serving as a modest stagecoach station, which was built back in the 19th century.
Now, the small building is a part of the Cape Foulweather’s Lookout Observatory & Gift Shop and is an incredible location and the perfect place to experience views of the Pacific Ocean from 500 feet above the sea level!
If you’re looking for an extremely unique natural experience, we highly suggest you visit the Sprouting Horns located above Cook’s Chasm, between Yachats and Florence. On the edge of the Pacific Ocean, these sprouting horns are magnificent to watch as the water hits the blow horns it goes straight up into the air creating unique hissing noises.
A truly breath-taking experience to see on your next trip to Depoe Bay!
