Lipson Cove beach (691) is 1.1 lm long and faces east in the north, curving round to face north in lee of Lipson Island. The small Island is tied to the beach at low tide, and is a conservation park. The beach usually has low waves breaking across a 50 m wide continuous bar (Fig. 4.118). Bare flat sand flats back the southern half of the beach and are used as a car park, with some low dunes to the north.

Swimming

Lipson Cove is by far the most accessible, safest and popular of these beaches and is used by locals and some travellers during the summer.

Surfing

Chance of usually low beach breaks at Lipson Cove.

Fishing

The rocks at the northern end of the cove are a popular location, with some fishing also off the beach.

General

Lipson Cove is one of the few publicly accessible beaches between Port Neill and Tumby Bay, as well as having a beach access point suitable for boat launching, and as a result is relatively popular.
