Cotton-Top Cove is the third world of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, but can also be accessed as the fourth world (and vice-versa for Mekanos).

Cotton-Top Cove is rather serene looking, filled with various lakes and waterfalls. The manual for Donkey Kong Country 3 describes Cotton-Top Cove as the Northern Kremisphere's best vacation spot because of the area's beautiful scenery. Due to the large amount of water in the area, several of Cotton-Top Cove's areas are located underwater among the fish and coral reefs.

Cotton-Top Cove was used as a vacation location in Northern Kremisphere, but Kremling remnants led by KAOS chased all tourists away.[1]

Among the waterfalls of Cotton-Top Cove various critters such as Bristles and Krumples roam. Near the waterfalls are various stair-like protrusions in the cliff face, whether these stairs were created or are simply the result of the rock being whethered by water is also unknown. Atop the waterfalls is a large lake and a long boardwalk. Swanky Kong set up a tent near the lake.

Blue is located in his beach hut near the beginning of the area. Also Cotton-Top Cove's Banana Bird Cave is located fairly close to the area's beginning, in between the road and waterfall.

The boss of Cotton-Top Cove is a slug-like creature called Squirt, who is located behind a waterfall to the east of the area.
