Ivory Kai is a privately owned point of land beyond the Kaibo Yacht Club. You will recognize the spot because of the large statue of Jesus at the entrance. Ivory Kai is a lovely spot, and you will see lots of starfish!

Ivory Kai is located just as Sue said it was. You will come to Rum Point, and just follow the signs to the Kaibo. When you see the Kaibo take the road that runs just before it [to the right] and you will come to a large stone gate with a chain across it...you will park outside the gate and walk toward the statue of Jesus...you will see the shore from there.

My family has found there to be more starfish on the left hand side of the shore, as you walk toward Jesus.

We have also seen some seahorse from time to time in the pilings there.

Good luck. Take a picnic and a kite, and have a wonderful lunch there!

Mart00, FYI:
Do not know if this is still true since Hurricane Ivan but...
There is a public access beach right before you get to Rum Point that is an excellent place to snorkel. It is an easy snorkel to the reef from the beach. However, you don't have to go out to the reef to see a lot of neat fish, etc.

If you do go to this Public Access area, please post after your trip to let us know how it is since Ivan has been through. We are going back next March.

Question for all: Since Ivory Kai is privately owned, can anyone go there? Sounds like something I would like to check out next year.

In the years we have been going to Ivory Kai for our annual family photo, it has been privately owned, and there has been no problem going. We are often joined by locals fishing or picnicing. Even some come to get a few coconuts!

We snorkeled the Rum Point Public Beach last year [after Ivan]. There was a lot of dead coral [and I do mean a lot], but the sealife was booming. We actually swam with a big school of squid, more than I had ever seen before. I love the photos of those squid. Also saw some very good sized baraccuda there, tangs, all the usual fish. However, unless things have changed since last year...and it takes a long time for the corals to repair, the coral was pretty devastated there.
