The best area is at the very north end of the beach where the reef and Aloso rock starts. Great underwater structures and caves as you progress North through the reefs. At the very tip of the rock formation the current and swell are very strong DO NOT GET CLOSE TO THE REEFS, you can get projected to it and risk injury or death ( Summer 1994) Life and plants are there and not near as abundant as it used to be before the construction started on top of the cliff. The storm water runoff deposited so much dirt and soil than the area lost 50 to 70% of its beauty, it is however still very interesting and inhabited. Night diving is great, lots of lobsters, calicos, perchs, Garibaldis and some occasional sand shark and rays still swimming around. Be safe.
