If you use Dive Friends, you can use the dock - easy entry and exit. If there is no/little current, going both north and south is good.

Nice dive site, next to the dive shop. Easy entry and exit off pier or most sandy beach. Reef starts just 20 meters off pier, ~30 - 100 feet deep. Experienced no current.
