Childers Cove itself is another small, embayed beach. It is 100 metre long with a bluff crossing the western end of the beach. It is backed by 30 metre high, grassy bluffs, and 40 metre high, red headlands guarding the cove. The beach is low and flat, with a shallow bay floor. It has a few reefs and one narrow sea stack just off the beach. A permanent rip drains out of the cove.

Childers Cove is an interesting dive site with plenty of marine life and opportunities for underwater photography. The cove is quite shallow for a long way out to sea which means any swell results in problematic diving conditions and poor visibility. If you can handle such conditions then it will be an enjoyable dive. If you can't, then wait for a calmer day.
