Evaluation

*Average:    3.65
Stick to the rock wall at the south-east end of this long beach. It's shallow, but with good visibility and, as someone else mentioned (but not emphatically enough) a nice place to find empty shells, particularly small cowries. BRING A DIVE FLAG. There's a lifeguard at this beach. In 900 or so dives on Oahu, I've only once been asked where my dive flag/dive buoy was, and been fined. HERE. Unemployment and resentment towards tourists & military runs high in Hawaii, so expect frequent theft. Leave nothing of value in your car, and leave a sign in your window saying you have nothing of value. Visibility tends to be quite nice when waves are low, and the white sand along the shallow wall make for warm, well-lit diving, with a beautiful spider web of light dancing across the sand. As with all Hawaii shore dives, call the local free surfers' advisory tel. #, listen to the recording, and avoid this spot if it's got waves enough to interest surfers.
