You will find a parking area along the road about 300 metres after rejoining the main road, usually with other fellow divers if on weekend. Gear up at the parking area and walk down the steps until reaching the shore. The entry point is about 50 metres following the shore on the left, just after passing a small rock overhang. Use the same spot for exit.
