Evaluation

*Average:    3.87
You enter this site through a housing development, but the beach itself is still in good condition. There are several thatched cabanas to get out of the sun. Stop at the 'gate' at the top of the hill -- there is a big drop-off at the bottom of the ramp that you might not want to drive over. The entry is pretty easy by the metal post, but you need to watch your footing on the flat rocks. The shallows are totally beat, but the old coral skeletons make for excellent snorkeling among the damselfish and parrotfish that come to graze. One afternoon we swam with two reef squid for several minutes. We also got to see a blue and a rainbow parrotfish here. The reef begins in about 20 feet then slopes off gently to about 50 feet before dropping more steeply. There are lots of coral heads with sand between them. Many whip corals have come back along the reef crest. We used this as an afternoon snorkel or second dive site.
