Take your time swimming on the surface to the point on the left, enjoying the scenery and sea birds. After a short rest, drop down. You may want to try a kayak dive at this site. Don't stop at this sign which marks the trail-side parking, but keep going a short distance more to the end of the road.

My wife and I tried to dive this site. It's a really long swim, I'd guess 4-500 meters. It's not a real pleasant either since many homes on the bluff discharge (presumably sewage) via pipes into this bay - yuck. The combination means - don't waste your time/air/money/energy here. The reef may be great, if you can get there…
