Evaluation

*Average:    3.91
This dive site has something for everyone. I did this dive with a dive scooter and later freediving. With the scooters we cruised over the top of the coral and swooped down into the sand patches in between. It was a great experience. The coral is very bright green/yellow. There are lots of turtles here. The days I dove the site they were in the deeper waters near the edges of the coral. If they're not moving they blend so well with the coral you may not see them. If you're snorkeling, stay on the surface, move slowly and keep look carefully. Freediving is good in as little as 10 to 15 feet of water. The outer reef is in about 30 to 40 feet. The entry is from a sand beach. There are nice showers and plenty of parking. If you only have a few days for beach diving this is one of the sites you should dive.
