Divers will encounter a multitude of sea creatures beneath the clear water—turtles, eels, and hundreds of tropical fish circle the reef. Rest up between dives on the lava shelf, a natural sitting area. The water can be quite cool; remember to pack a wetsuit.

BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Divers can head straight out or north along the rocky shore. Better yet, bring two tanks and try both routes.
  • An abundance of reef life makes this a great place to snorkel.
  • Because of fishing boat traffic, a dive flag is strongly recommended.
This is a beautiful, diverse, and easily accessible dive site suitable for a range of divers. From beginners to pros, the diving destination is ideal for groups of mixed abilities.
