John Cove beach (WA 306) is a 500 m long section of sand that fronts the Wellstead Estuary, terminating against the rocks of the western headland, where low wave to calm conditions usually prevail. The beach is partially washed away following break out of the lagoon and overwashed by high waves. There is road access to the southern corner of the beach, which is also used to launch fishing boats. This is the main boat launching beach and in season fish are netted from the beach. A Surf Life Saving Club was established in Bremer Bay in 1962, patrolling this beach. Unfortunately it only survived a few years.
