Shark's Cove

Shark's Cove is a great rocky shore/tide pool area.  The water is shallow, and it's fun to just walk on the rocks or through the water and spot the fish, crabs, sea urchins and such.

If you like to snorkel, this is a fabulous place for that too!

The water is calmer from March-October, best in the summer, but apparently dangerous and inaccessible during winter. We came on an early October morning and although there were a few strong waves coming in to part of the cove occasionally, the kids were still able to snorkel and had a great time.

Make sure you wear water shoes or sandals to protect your feet from sharp coral and rocks.

It's a great place for older kids to explore, and although there's no sandy beach to play on for younger kids, our four-year-old enjoyed playing at the edge of the water, looking at rocks and shells, and spying crabs.

  1. What a treasure to have so close to your home. I can't wait to some out and see for myself. I am a little concerned about the name--Shark's Cove. Do sharks frequent this cove?
