Description: 

Cook's Cove is out off the point at the southern end of Tolaga Bay, about a 25 minute walk from the Tolaga Bay wharf. Coves Cove produces a right hand point break on a rocky beach. The wave is powerful, with a hollow drop in and solid wall. There are also other breaks around Mitre Rocks and off Pourewa Island. Experts only.
