Evaluation

*Average:    2.14
Unfortunately, the island has recently (in the last month) started to develop the pier area. The local roads are closed and you can only access the pier by giant striding off the pier. This is OK- but the exit involves climbing over slippery rocks while holding onto a rusty metal girder on the side of the pier. Not an impossible exit- but not easy. I would not recommend it for night, although the local dive shop said people still go. The construction seems to have affected the sea life- there was lots of silt and particulates in the water, lower vis and covering much of the rocks. The stanchions which are encrusted are nice enough, with some resident life, but not really worth the dive IMHO. It is no longer comparable to Bonaire piers.
