Evaluation

*Average:    3.02
Pretty cool spot. Need 4WD + good clearance to get down from the road or hike in about 1/8 mile (uphill coming back). Camping is good there but kinda trashy I'm sorry to report. Entry is best at high tide and easiest with booties. To the left, there are a couple of sand holes that make it a little easier. A definite knee scraper without leg covering. Around the North point is the best in my opinion. Acres of finger coral slope down to 50 or 60 feet. Lots of shells - please don't take live ones. Lots of eels, reef fish and occasional Ulua (jacks). Good year-round when there are no major swells from the South or West. Winter is my favorite because the Humpback Whale sounds seem louder there than anywhere on the island. Maybe it echoes off the Pali (cliffs)?
