Just did two dives here during monsoon season. There is now a beach bar with volleyball court, music, parking, and even a 'cultural' park located next to the entry, and a light pole facing the ocean is in direct line with the telephone cable. Despite the installation of road swales, the widened compacted coral gravel road has added silt and runoff to the sea, decreasing visibility. The reef is still in excellent condition, but this time I did not find the resident pipefish. If the surf breaking on the outer reef is 3 feet or greater, I'd dive somewhere calmer, as on the way back in, waves crash over one's head, and returning to the sea through the cut in which the telephone cable lies. Still really enjoy this site, which has octopus, eels, clownfish, anemones, grouper, hard corals and sponges. Highly recommended, but watch your depth, as you can go well past 130 feet.
