Giant Clams/The hill

The name speaks for itself. This site is covered in Giant Clams. While there is some coral in the immediate area of the clams, it becomes more sandy bottom as you move away from them.

As you move away from the area with the Giant Clams, it becomes sandy bottom muck diving. Keep a sharp eye out as the sand is full of life!
