Evaluation

*Average:    4.06
Facilities are great-- short walk from parking, benches, shade, stinky bathroom, and shower. Maybe no phone. Many homeless camp there, and break-ins DO happen, so bring a land-lubber to watch the car & enjoy the sun. The beach is made of big rocks and medium-size stones. Chest-high waves assault you & wreck viz at the entry, so inflate vest to half-full, wade out in pairs to chest-height, THEN don fins & swim out on your back with regulator in place. Excellent place for a night dive, if you stick near the artificial reef/ pipes. Lots of humpback cowries live in the pipes, and many empty shell-fragments can be found in front of the pipes...along with morays. Advanced divers may enjoy tumble-gliding in the pipe exhaust, but don't try it if equalizing & buddy separation freak you. Lots of flat sandy patches amid corals, for Open-Water SCUBA skills. No depths over 25'~30'. Good viz (30'-ish) year-round.
