I think the reference is to the "Shark Pens". These are some partly eroded concrete jetties that are located way around to the right as you walk toward the water from Flamenco Beach's parking lot. Even further right than Coconuts. I've heard, but can't positively confirm, that the navy used them to keep sharks being used to test shark repelent. Now they are a curiosity worth a short snorkle. The most interesting thing I've seen there was a sqadron of squids. There is more to see on the outside of the reef around to the left at Flamenco, although in May, I saw signs hanging from the swim buoys that warned swimmers off.
