This cove is popular with dive instructors for class dives. The beach entry is very easy, as long as the swell isn't from the south. During the winter the visibility ranges form poor (when the swell is high) to outstanding. During the summer it ranges from poor to fair. I have seen lobster here, and a couple of rock scallops, there is an abundance of fish life. It makes for a fun dive.
