This local beach diving was one of the best I could find without too much hiking required. I would suggest getting the local reef tour with JADS. Walter was my guide and helpful at pointing out the local critters. He was patient for taking photos and allowing me to spend time searching on the ledge for the hidden marine life. The cross memorial is a very cool item to photograph. If you are into sitting back and having the animals come to you this isn't the place that is going to keep you entertained. Like any reef, the animals feel safe staying hidden so you have to find them. There were different varieties of lobster, coral banded shrimp, and tons of Christmas tree worms. The schools of fish were plentiful and box fish friendly. Pipefish and puffer fish hung out along the reef and with patience, the smaller fish hiding in the coral came out for photos. Don't be turned off by the opening of the bay that has damaged coral because you will miss out on the awesome reef that parallels the shore for an easy, relaxing dive.
