The entrance to the beach access is blocked by large lava boulders so you will have to park on a side of the Puako rd. (across from the church), gear up and head on to the beach. Entry is fairly easy if there's no surf. We entered in the 'pool' area to the left and marked the site with a red rag to make sure we can identify the exit spot when we're done - that helped a lot. Make sure you don't step on one of the small green turtles swimming around. Kick straight out 300 ft and drop down. Site bottom slopes to ~65-70ft before the sand patch begins so most of life is at around 40ft. Usual finger corals and small reef fish. No facilities around.
