I drove down here twice, with the surf up each time. It was a bummer, because it sounds like a sweet spot to dive. A rather unhelpful and unfriendly ranger said no one ever dives here. Well, my instructor at home as well as over 20 people on this site think otherwise... It was a scenic drive. Traveled through an old lava flow, and past Ahihi cove/bay and some other spots. Big beach is along the way too. I will try again if I am back to the islands sometime.
