Crabs!!! This spot is a crab nursery. Try to hit this site at slack coming into an incoming (high) tide. An outgoing tide could blow you out to sea if you are not careful. Nothing much here to look at, but the crabbing is a blast. There are small channels and fingers in 20-30 feet of water right next to shore where the crabs are sitting on the surface of the rock or sand, or just under the sand. It's a race when you get down there to chase crabs, turning them over looking for legal size adult males with one hand while grabbing the next crab with the other hand. My wife and I loved going here regularly and getting a free meal or two of Dungeness crab before we moved to Kona.
