What intrigues most beasts is what could potentially be under the sand. A local legend claims that the cove was once the hideout of the Ivory Corsairs, a band of successful pirates, in days of yore. Furthermore, it states that one out of every five pirates has their stash on the cove (usually idiots who believe in fictitious ideas of pirates burying their booty), that sometimes you can just stick a spade in the ground, without a map at all, and strike gold.
The most famous story concerning unearthing lost riches is about Croper himself, at the time a young privateer. Bumbling around in the middle of the night with a half-chest full of gold, he stuck a spade into the ground and found enough plunder to buy a house on Parva and establish himself as a noble and honest beast, as well as giving the cove its name. Ever since, many make pilgrimages to Croper's Cove, armed to the teeth with digging tools in hopes of finding swag.
Incidentally, there is a large, smoking mountain near the back of the island. Nobody really pays attention to it.
