The dive site consists of a steeply sloping wall where one can see black corals and many feather stars. It is a good spot for snorkelling. It is an easy dive site for PADI Open Water Divers or Higher. Visibility (+): 12-20m; Depth: 3-40m; Current: 0-2. The dive is most interesting at 8-12m and not so below 30m. The area is a bit affected by dynamite fishing.
One can either take a Jeepney or car to get to the dive site, in case of rough waters on Alona Beach. In a land dive, be careful with entry, it can be shallow. With full equipment, one has to walk carefully down the cliff for it can be slippery. Entry and exit points are the same. Start the dive with the wall on the left shoulder, going south-west.
The spot is great for shallow-water photography. Aside from the corals, one will have a good chance of seeing young Barracudas, and Banner fish.
