Incredible fish diversity (the most species I have seen in one area on this island), frequented by honu/green sea turtles. There are nice corals in the deeper far end of the cove. Great place for snorkelers of all experience, no need to scuba. Rocks protect most of the cove, so even when the ocean is rough, you can still swim there just fine, but visibility drops. Haven't checked it out at night yet. Has a nice black sand beach to lounge on, but it can get crowded with lots of children. Bathrooms are okay, has outdoor showers. Please don't step on the corals! :0
