NOTICE (Posted 8/10/22): Cove Road Beach will close temporarily for a shoreline restoration project beginning Monday, Aug. 15. The project aims to resolve shoreline and stream bank erosion problems at the park. For safety reasons, the public will not be permitted on Cove Road Beach during the closure. Updates on the project, including reopening details, will be posted as they become available.

If you'd like to spend a day in the sun and sand this summer, look no further than Cove Road Beach in Bivalve, MD. About 15 miles from Salisbury, the Cove is a well kept secret by those who have discovered it. Why? Because it is the perfect beach spot for kids and sunbathers alike and the quick, scenic drive down Nanticoke Road beats sitting in Route 50 beach traffic any day.

The beach area is long and narrow with tall beach grass separating it from the parking lot and shaded picnic tables. From the warm sand, the view of the Nanticoke River is beautiful. The water is calm and shallow, perfect for young children to swim in without the worry of being knocked over by an ocean wave. Plus, it's a good fishing and crabbing spot in the quiet of the early morning or evening hours. So, save yourself some time, gas money, and stress this summer and head to the Cove when it’s time to hit the beach!

Parking availability and space is limited in capacity. Early arrival is recommended, as spaces fills quickly. Grilling and fires are not allowed on the beach. A grill and a limited amount of picnic tables are available adjacent to the beach.

This park was funded in part by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Grants.
