The dive site is in Halifax County, through the community of Hubbards, and on to Route 329 on the coastal road on the west side of St. Margaret's Bay. The spot is just past Mill Cove, once you enter the strip community of Birchy Head. It is marked by an old, broken down, and partially burnt FISH SHACK on the left side of the road going out...One has to turn around and park on the shoulder of the road facing back along by the shack. There is tight parking for 5 vehicles.

The path down to the shoreline is around the right side of the FISH SHACK, and is a short scramble down small boulders to and easy walk to a small granite point jutting out into the water. This point offers easy water access and is 3-9' deep, depending on tide.
The diving is on a nice boulder slope running down to 40-50' to a gravel slope that gradually drops to ~100' deep. The rich seaweeds and marine life are in the top 40' of water.
It is calm in westerly winds, as it faces due east and is good for all level of divers in light northwest to southwest winds.
