04/16/2008 Kendall Roberg (Avg: 3.50 Review) - Wonderful site! The swim-through arch mentioned below is very fun and often dwarf morays can be found inside it. This reef has a feel similar to areas of Makena Landing and 5 Graves, with long large lava fingers and awesome marine life. I found a Red stripe and a Blue strip Pipefish hanging out together in the same hole here yesterday. Frogfish and cleaner shrimp can also frequently be found. A nice dive with an easy entry.

11/06/2007 Bill Stohler (Avg: 3.09 Review) - Haloa Point is located at the South side of Palauea Beach (AKA, White Rock). It is best to dive this site when there is no South swell, as the surf can really pound here. Enter at the left side of the beach (facing the ocean) and swim to the left, keeping the reef on your left. The 'wall' begins as a shallow reef, eventually reaching 30 feet or so. There is also a swim-through arch more or less straight out from the entry with a buoy where dive and snorkel boats tie off. This site is excellent for beginners on calm days, and offers a good variety of fishes and typically a few green sea turtles.
