This beautiful beach is only accessible via the private community of Irvine Cove. The two parts of the beach are separated by a rocky point that has a tunnel for passing through during very low tides. The majority of the people who visit this beach enjoy the larger, southern section of the cove.
Popular activities include all water sports, surfing, body surfing, skin and scuba diving, and skim boarding.
Major rip currents can develop. Surfing is done mainly at the southern end of the cove with most swimmers staying towards the middle to enjoy the water.
If you do visit this area please do not take, collect or disturb any of the marine life. The taking or collecting of rocks, shells, or marine life is prohibited. Fishing is not allowed at this beach.
Note: This cove is governed by the Irvine Cove Homeowners Association, and some beach policies and ordinances may differ from the City.
