CLOSE TO HOME. Far from everyday.

Pirate Cove offers everything one looks for in a destination vacation or afternoon getaway.

This secluded California oasis is located in the Moabi Regional Park, on the banks of the Colorado River, just 11 miles southeast of Needles, California.

Nestled among the palm trees and surrounded by pristine white sandy beaches, this first-class family destination offers its guests luxurious accommodations, a 250 slip marina facility with 24 hour gas dock and a 7 lane launch ramp… all situated along Historic Route 66.

Whether you are looking for a relaxing getaway or an afternoon refuge from your travels, Pirate Cove offers an oasis that brings you back to a simpler life where you can eat, drink, play, and unwind the pirates way. Once “ashore,” take advantage of our many amenities including our award-winning pirate-themed restaurant and beach bar, spacious beachfront cabins, riverfront RV resort, boat rentals, children’s water park, and playground.

The All-in-one Vacation Destination

For those looking for more adventure, set sail on our Yacht Tour and explore Topock Gorge and Havasu Wildlife Refuge where you’ll find an abundance of wildlife, lava
pinnacles and ancient petroglyphs on the gorge walls.

Or you can choose to do nothing at all! Just sit back and relax… shaded by thatch palapas along the white sandy beaches of the Colorado River.

We are constantly adding more features and amenities so be sure to check back often.
