Shark Fin Cove

Shark Fin Cove, west of Santa Cruz, almost to Davenport, is a narrow bite carved out of the marine terrace - steep cliffs on both sides and a sandy pocket beach trapped in between. The shark fin (or tooth?) is a sea stack, left as the surrounding cliffs were eroded landward by the waves.


There's a neat little cave that frames the east side of the cove and some human artifacts, including a tunnel, at the head of the cove that suggest an interesting human history.

Some more info on Shark Fin Cove.
