Good variety of marine life, we saw white tip reef sharks, octopus, loads of fish and several types of nudibranches. Also the shifting sands was amazing, at about 40 feet.

This is one of the areas that most dive companies take you to. It is a very good dive site and you should see plenty of marine life around.

Take a glass bottom boat from the marina to lovers beach and they will take you by pelican rock. It is very smelly as it is full of sea lions, but it is very cool to see

I was just there 2 months ago solo and it was fine. As the person mentioned above, mind your business and stay out of questionable areas. A lot of the crime is gang related and unless you are trying to do some risky "fun... More
