Comments If you are not very familiar with this site, hire a guide! The dive is shallow, but access is controlled by tides and lifeguard rules. Dive is shallow, less than 6 meters, average 3. The macro life is outstanding. Visibility can be poor, 3-6 meters. Dive pressure on weekends is heavy and parking is limited. Arrive early, best to dive during the week.

Really interesting diving, with lots to see.

You must have float & flag. Beware of boat traffic. Water is warm, thin wetsuit very adequate.
