Otter Rock

Situated between Depoe Bay and Yaquina Head, discover the idyllic community of Otter Rock.

See some of the Oregon coast’s most dramatic headlands, including the infamous Devils Punchbowl, formed by the convergence and collapse of two caves and carved like a bowl by the ocean’s powerful waves. Beyond offering vaulted views of stunning geological formations, access the shoreline below, where you can explore the Otter Rock Marine Reserve and enjoy some of the best tide pooling the Central Coast has to offer, when the tide is right, of course.

Taste handcrafted wines at Flying Dutchman Winery, grab an Oceanfront bite at Mo’s and a homemade sweet treat at Cliffside Coffee & Sweets, or take surf lessons with Pura Vida Surf Shop.

The adjacent ocean front park is the ultimate picnic spot, where you can see the sun set below Gull Rock, and watch the seasonal gray whale migration.
