Cove & Tide Pools
The Cove at Terranea, a beach enclave a short distance from the resort pool, is both a marine and geological masterpiece. Carved by nature, the Cove is an ideal place for guests to watch for dolphins at play, sculpt a sand castle or simply soak in the sun.
Terranea's coastline provides a rocky haven for many marine animals that only thrive in this ever-changing tidal environment. A visit to our tide pools is your chance to take a curious glimpse into the ocean. This habitat includes algae ("seaweeds") and a plethora of marine invertebrates - unusual creatures without vertebral columns like sea slugs, anemones, seastars and shellfish.
