The site is inaccessible by land. One must hire a fishing boat from either Balan or Piatre, both towns in the Baie de l'Acul. With a 10-15 hp outboard (about all you can find with the small fishermen) the ride takes from 20-30 min to Lemon Beach.

This site requires a bit of a walk/swim to get across approximately 30 meters of sea grass beds. Once past the sea grass, there is a nice patch of soft corals and sponges interspersed with some hard corals.
For Haiti, where overfishing is a serious problem, this site offers some fish including butterfly fish, wrasses, tangs, and small bright red gobies.
The visibility can be low if after a big rain where water brings sediments down from the land. On the other hand, the site is nicely protected from long shore currents in the mouth of the bay.
