We only snorkeled here. I am not a diver. There were two ways to get in the water. The first is to walk on this rickety old pier to the end and put on your snorkel stuff and ease in. The pier has some slimy wood steps at the end. The waves kind of hit you and push you a bit as you get in and the slippery steps are a little tricky. No biggy. The other way to enter the water is to walk and the beach to the shore and gear up for entry. The shore is hard on your bare feet. Either is ok but not all locations have an old pier like this one did. There is some shade on shore but no facilities.
