Cobo is probably the second most popular beach on Guernsey. It is primarily a sandy channel lying between the distinctive Cobo geology. It is deceptively steep around the half-tide mark and at low tide the sea is not anything like as far to reach as other beaches on the island.
Car parks can be found at both ends of the beach. To the south is a kiosk and toilets next to the access slipway. At the northern end is Cobo village where a small supermarket, post office, garage and chip shop can be found. The very popular Rockmount pub is located centrally along the coast road.
Dogs are banned 1st May to 30th September. Due to its popularity, Cobo is a 25mph zone in the summer months.
