Tennessee Cove is an embankment off the Pacific Ocean in Marin County, California. It is named after the "S.S. Tennessee", a steamship that ran aground near here on March 6, 1853. All 550 passengers climbed safely onto the beach, and fourteen chests of gold were salvaged before the ship broke up.
The cove is a 1.8-mile (2.9 km) hike from the parking lot near the end of Tennessee Valley Road.
On December 29, 2012, the landmark arch at Tennessee Cove collapsed. The landmark had been a popular photography subject over the years.
