Davenport Cove & Shark Fin Beach in Davenport, California

This is a sandy beach in a small but deep cove south of the town of Davenport. Davenport Cove is locally known by several different names including Shark Fin Cove and Shark Tooth Beach because of the huge rock in the mouth of the cove that looks like a shark fin or tooth depending on where you are standing.

Another unique feature of this beach is the large rock arch tunnel that you can walk into and through (at low tide). It’s incredibly picturesque and frames the ocean and sea stacks perfectly. On the path into the cove there’s a drainage tunnel but it’s much smaller than the tunnel by the shore.

For parking at Davenport Cove look for a pull-out parking area along Highway 1 about a half-mile north of Bonny Doon Road at Bonny Doon Beach. From the parking area walk across the railroad tracks and look for a trail at the back of the cove starting next to the tracks. The trail to Davenport Cove Beach can have difficult footing and make the access dangerous.

The bluff-top farm road north of the cove has one of the best views of the shark fin if you’ve come here for photos. This road makes a pleasant hiking loop. An equally great vantage point for this cove can be found by walking the south bluff.
