Devil's Churn really does churn. The water swirls a lot and crashes into the rocks. It's dramatic and makes one very glad to be observing, not trying to do anything with it.

Stopped in here on the 1 day in 5 we had in Yachats that was not raining... it was fabulous! The power of the water and the way it has carved the rocks over time... awe-inspiring. Definitely worth a trip. Little hikes all over the...More

You want to get there near high tide to get the effects of the churning. During a storm is even better. It is a long chasm with tidal effects.

Just outside of Yachts going south the Devils Churn, is well marked but on a very windy 101, so go gently and watch out. The carpark is adequate of approximately 15 cars. The walk down to the view point and beach is scenic and safe...More

Another scenic spot in this area but the waves weren't high enough to crash against the rocks but still so much beauty. Did the restless waters hike.

We walked around looking for it not knowing what to expect. I'd recommend a stormy weekend for a good show but it's a huge rock old cave that caved in and you can see the ocean threw it. Glad I saw it but thorns well...More

This is worth the stop! It is so amazing to see the power of the ocean. If your driving through Yachats, you have to stop and see this beauty!

Pretty area to stop as you explore the coast. At low tide there is plenty of tide pools and rocks to explore along the oceanfront. On high tide the water gets pretty rough but makes for more dramatic churning and sounds in Devil's Churn. Bathrooms...More

Google Yachats tide conditions 2015. It's also worth noting that other weather conditions such as swell, storm etc will have an effect on your experience so watch the weather forecast for the area.
