China Cove is dominated by a mixture of consolidated bedrock and boulder fields, and the area surrounding the site is comprised of a mixture of boulder fields, cobble beach, and sandy beach. The primary coastal orientation of this site is northeast.

China Cove was established in 2007 and resampled in 2009 as part of a Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA).  Point contact, photo plot, motile invertebrate, and Fucus size structure surveys were done as part of the NRDA.
