    Just north of Newport is Otter Rock, where the Devil's Punchbowl creates a boiling cauldron of maniacal wave action. It's a sea cave where the top fell through ages ago, letting you peek inside. Because of rock structures surrounding this small headland, waves pick up lots of energy and become enormous, smashing into the rocks around the Punchbowl.
