Shipwreck Cove is a landmark in Fortnite: Battle Royale, added in Update v11.00, on the Apollo island. It is located inside co-ordinate H7, South-East of Catty Corner.
It is a small bay with many overturned/washed up boats, including some Motorboats, in it. At the shore of the bay, there is a shack containing several Fishing Rods.

Mave can be found as a Character near here, at a house on-top of the mountain above Shipwreck Cove. Cole and Bunker Jonesy normally accompany her there.

  • The End: During the events of The End, two Abductors were left behind after the portal to The Sideways was closed due to The Cube Queen's explosion. As Apollo underwent a 90-degree tilt and began to flip over, the Abductors crashed into the southeastern part of the map. The highest Abductor crashed in hills above Shipwreck Cove and was further destroyed as it fell through directly into Shipwreck Cove. It has now disappeared from the map following the Event, as Apollo had flipped around completely.
