The entry is very easy here. This site can be entered from various locations that are all close to each other. There is hardly any surf or current at this site and visibility is usually great. The bottom is made up of beautiful white sand and farther out it is covered with algae. Snorkeling here is easy and comes down to swimming along the rocky coastline and staying close to it. Going far out into deeper water does not pay off: there you'll see many Cushion Sea Stars, a (very) few Yellow Tube Sponges and some (dead) Loggerhead Sponges, but that is about it. There is hardly any fish in the deeper part. Close to the coast line however, you'll see lots of fish. Most notably you'll see thousands of Silversides, large schools of Shortfin Sweepers, French Grunts, Squirrelfish, Bluehead Wrasses and the occasional Palometa Jack. There are also many Pelicans here! There is almost no coral at this site. This site is really good for inexperienced snorkelers. This is not a dive site, so don't come here with your scuba gear.
