Evaluation

*Average:    4.09
Week of Oct 20-24 2008, most of the snorkeling on the island is junk due to hurricane Omar that passed thru here last week. Most shallow reefs are flattened. This is still the best spot on the island to go, as the reef was deep enough to survive. Park at the Mango Halto lagoon, but don't enter the water there. Instead walk down the road 2 blocks, and there you will find a house painted yellow that has a small beach access next to it. Enter here and swim out only 100 ft to about 20' water depth. You will drift over the best beach accessible reef on the island. Drift to the lagoon and enter thru the channel to avoid the fire coral. Google maps shows this area very clearly.
