Thistle Cove is best known for its intriguingly sculpted granite boulders, including a "whistling" rock that captures the sound of the wind. This secluded small bay features a sandy beach fringed by sloping granite rocks and backed by freshwater wetlands. In addition to swimming, snorkeling, diving, and surfing, visitors often go for a bushwalk to the nearby Lucky Bay, which provides rewarding views over rugged headlands sloping steeply into the ocean.
