This is more a local spot and you can expect to see people of all ages (clothes or not - who cares). There are no facilities and no lifeguards. You should plan carry in/carry out and consider that the trail is steep in spots. It is a beautiful location! The sand shimmers like gold to the left of the cove. Perhaps it is.

I am from the San Francisco Bay Area and a lover of nude beaches. I was living in a new place (Eureka) at the time I went (2011, NOT 2018-2019) to College Cove and remember I had seen it listed in a Guide to Beaches of that kind and so off I went. Unfortunately it didn't come through like I thought it would (although maybe it was a nude beach after all??) but I still enjoyed myself; OF COURSE be ing out by the water in its unique configuration was a nice way to spend a day. I can't say much more given that this was 8 years ago but IT IS STILL a good place to go whether you are nude or not!!! JUST DO IT!!

Accessible from above and below (at the right times), this is a fun an beautiful beach that gives a totally different view of Pewetole Island and Trinidad Head.

If you can make the road out to Shelter Cover, do yourself a favor and DO IT! Black sand beaches and the most stunning shades of blue ocean you will see on the West Coast!
