The south entry at Salt is way superior than the north. The north has the typical broken iron shore with a step down. Almost busted my a* getting in that way. And getting out there sucked too as the surf had increased a lot during our dive, I carry a big camera and we were coming out just before sundown, with tons of urchins coming out. Definitely did not want to put your hand on one of them.Interesting! Do you find entering south of the pier superior than north of the pier? I think I've done north, just because I tend to be headed southward and park before I reach the pier, so it just 'kind of happened' without thinking much about it. Maybe it's time to think...(when all else fails, of course).
The south entry however has a gently sloping beach, no holes, no big boulders, no step down. You gradually walk in and float to put your fins on.
