Covehithe is a hamlet and civil parish in the Waveney District of the English county of Suffolk. It lies on the North Sea coast around 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Southwold and 7 miles (11 km) south of Lowestoft. Neighbouring settlements include Benacre, South Cove and Frostenden.

The coastline in the Covehithe area suffers from the highest rate of erosion in the UK, and the settlement has suffered significant loss of land and buildings in the past.

Modern Covehithe has a population of around 20. The parish of Covehithe has been combined with that of neighbouring Benacre.
