East Cove is a 600 m wide north-facing slight embayment between Blackfellows Point and the rear of Grass Point (Fig. 4.101). Beach BI 17 extends for 500 m along the shore of the cove. It is a reflective low energy beach backed by a narrow reserve, then a caravan park and a cleared 200 m wide valley, with several houses in the small Cooksville settlement located on the slopes above the western end of the beach. Dorloff Creek drains the valley and flows to the rear of the centre of the beach where it is deflected to the eastern end.
