05/01/2002 Danny McKenzie (Avg: 2.97 Review) - The images on the page here make it look easy to get into the water, not so.. there is lots of round rocks about the size of a softball all over the place, making it difficult to walk out to get into the water. My advice, CRAWL! It's a bit tricky to get in and out here. Watch your step. It's pretty much all sand bottom once you get a few feet from the shoreline. With little to see, except the odd fish. There isn't really much of a drop off until you get to the island out front of the beach. On the right end of the island the wall goes down to about 85+ feet. Lots of animal and plant life once your near the island.
