Shark Fin Cove in Davenport Beaches

While Tyler was driving, I frantically searched "Shark Fin Cove" into Google Maps, but no actual location popped up, only a not-very-useful "Highway 1, Davenport, CA" address.

It was coming up any minute and turning around on a one lane highway was too stressful to think about.

I googled "Shark Fin Cove" and looked for any indication of a location on a map and then proceeded to try to match the edges of the coast to the app. It was like studying puzzle pieces.

It looked like it was coming up soon. One minute later, I told him "It should be any parking area that comes up RIGHT after Bonny Doon road."

We literally just had a few minutes of light left. It didn't help that I wasn't wearing appropriate footwear.

Also, as a final note, here's how to find Shark Fin Cove, since it wasn't easy finding exact directions.

Basically, turn left and park in the lot that comes RIGHT AFTER BONNY DOON ROAD when traveling north on Highway 1.


  1. I love these shots! The ones looking through the cave opening are gorgeous, but the top view of Shark Fin with the sunset in the back is stunning!
