Evaluation

*Average:    3.34
This site is tricky to find, but worth the effort. The road from town turns right away from the ocean then back left parallel with the ocean. Shortly after that left turn is an entrance to a housing development with two yellow stones, one on either site of the entrance gate. These two stones mark the two Andrea sites; slow down or you will miss them. Turn in to the housing development and follow the signs (first right then first left I believe). There is a sizable parking lot within 100 yards of the entry point. Although the road continues past the parking lots, and the gate is down, there is not room to park on the beach and the drop from the end of the road to the soil would probably do damage. The entry route was marked with yellow stones and involved stepping down and around perhaps 10 feet of ledge and rocks. It was easy for us, and we got small, medium, and large cameras in and out without any problem. Divers need to don and doff fins in chest-deep water rather than on shore. The site was quite lovely, with mostly healthy coral, and lots of plant and animal life. The terrain lends itself to photography. Note that the off-the-beaten-path location of this site makes anything left in cars vulnerable; ours was rifled through and we lost a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and two pairs of black shorts.
