- Cliff jumpers and sea anglers off the shore.
A sheltered narrow inlet popular for both diving and snorkelling. This is a great training site. There are vertical bedrock walls on either side as you enter the cove, which are covered in dense kelp and which have some nice overhangs and swim throughs. The seabed between both walls is sandy, with areas of boulders found at the base of the walls.
Dense kelp covers much of the bedrock at this site, often with large shoals of fish. The boulders are coated in encrusting and tufted red algae. Look out forsquat lobsters in the nooks and crannies amongst the boulders and overhanging rock.
- In an emergency call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
- Follow VHF radio Channel 16 (156.8 MHz), the international distress frequency.
