We dived and snorkeled this site this year. Park by the side of the road, then walk through the shallow puddle by the mangroves. The entry is not difficult, despite a step-down of about a foot onto rocks that have urchins in the holes. Just watch your footing. There are a number of isolated coral heads in the shallows that are covered by brain and fire coral, whips, and sea fans. Lots of fish are around these areas. Staghorn coral is starting to regrow a bit further out towards the break. The reef slope has abundant coral cover and sponges, so is quite scenic. We saw a good number of the usual fish. This is a nice relaxing dive (despite a pretty stiff current the day we dived it), where you can use the mooring buoy as a reference on your return.
