Devils Cauldron

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Cliffs above the Devil's Cauldron, Oswald West State Park (bobcat)


The Devils Cauldron is a cliff-backed cove just south of Short Sand Beach. The ocean swells churn and froth around a handful of sea stacks, including Cube Rock, making this a spectacular view on a fine day. A viewpoint at the top of the cliffs can be reached from the nearby Elk Meadow Trail/Oregon Coast Trail.

On topo maps, this frothing gully is labeled "Treasure Cove," while the inlet to the north, between it and Smugglers Cove, is the real Devils Cauldron. Others think the names should be reversed.
