Shaw’s Cove is located at the base of Fairview Street and is approximately 500 feet in length. The best diving is on the west side of the cove. Skimboarding is not allowed. When conditions are mild enough to permit it, the rocks are pleasant for strolling and there is very good tide pooling on both sides. The Tide Water Docent program provides volunteers to educate the public during low tides or on busy weekends and holidays.
