To enter the beach, you must walk down the side of a cliff. The beach entry looks like a little cove. This makes the entry and exit very easy to do. The reefs there look like arches and have a lot of ledges you could look under. Under these ledges are a lot of different types of reef fishes, some of which you will only find in Hawaii. These arches were formed by lava flow long ago. This dive site looks like a little Grand anyon. Large lava rock boulders are situated about 20 feet from the entrance underwater, making it a spectacular site to see. The first picture from the left side is the cliff entry. The middle picture is the cove and the right picture is the formation of the reefs. The depth here is about 40ft.
