Evaluation

*Average:    3.64
This is a good entry for a trip "outside" which comes in at Baby Beach or behind the Esso Club. Current is always present, so it is more fun to swim with the current. The coral and fish life beyond the drop off is still pristine; the shallow reef has a lot of storm damage. Visibility will often be 80-100'; it can be as low as 50'. Many open water species frequent the deeper reef. I grew up in a house overlooking this area; this is home to me.
