Park by the hotel and walk through the grassy park to the beach. This will shorten your walk through the sand. Be prepared for a long swim out. If you swim out on your back you can enjoy the mountains in the background as you take your time to reach the dive area out by the point. Sea life was abundant here, with parrot fish, eels and what looked like sea snakes but I'm not sure about that. I'll have to pick up a book on that one. The water here was very clear with a wonderful aqua blue tint. Nice lava formations down below also. Even though the swim out was long, we headed back toward shore about 1/2 way through the dive and with the current helping we were washing up on the shore like a couple of beached whales at about 300psi...to the surprise of some of the beach go'ers I might add..hee..hee. Great dive with easy access and showers in the park to rinse your gear.
