Family Friendly A short hike with lots of tide pools.

The beach and Punchbowl are only accessible at low tide.

Overview

This is a great hike to take during low tide. The beach hiking, tide pools, and views make this great for the whole family. But be sure to check the tide charts as getting trapped out at high tide can be deadly.

Need to Know

The beach and Punchbowl are only accessible at low tide. At high tide, the beach is covered with water and accessing it or the Punchbowl is deadly. The Punchbowl may not be accessible at low tide during storms. The trail to the beach is somewhat eroded.

Description

Begin at the trailhead on C Avenue. The trail is paved for a bit as it descends toward the beach, then becomes sandy. At the beach, turn left to the Devils Punchbowl, a sea cave with a collapsed roof (enter the old cave through a sea arch). Inside and outside are tidepools; there is also a sea cave tunnel to explore nearby.

If you turn right at the end of the trail to the beach, you can see a small waterfall.

Note! The beach and Punchbowl are only accessible at low tide. At high tide, the beach is covered with water and accessing it or the Punchbowl is deadly. The Punchbowl may not be accessible at low tide during storms.

Flora & Fauna

Tide pool life: seaweed, kelp, sea stars, etc.
