Best just to the left of the pool. There is a deep channel you can follow out into the bay. Same when exiting. Remember reg in mask on. Alternative there is a ledge thirtey metres to the left of the channel. Suitable for exits as well. Watch for Sea Urchins. Shoulder roll entry is advised.
Once clear of channel or ledge, head in a N-E direction follow the wall and rocks on your right along the sand . It will gradually change to a E S-E direction.

Lots of Nooks ,Crannies and Ledges. Its common to see stacks of golf balls because of the golf course opposite the dive site.
Tips (from the pro)
Be careful of slippery rocks and depth of entries. The max depth will usually be around the 10 mtr mark. Best on flooding tide.
