This is the best shore diving spot during high surf conditions because the entry is so easy. We did this dive at night for the first time and had no problem figuring out where to get in. At night, there is a timer on the light that marks the parking area, so you should leave your own flashing strobes at the entry point because the timer might expire while you are diving and you won't know where to go. At night, we saw slipper lobster, lizard fish, lots of shrimp, crab, sleeping turtles, etc. It was a 35 minute drive from the Keahou Bay area and well worth it.
