The coral is surrounded by sand and there are rubble and sand areas to anchor on to avoid damaging the reef.

Site is in the Shark Bay Marine Park
Description: The area is patchy corals over sand. It is a popular fishing site so care is needed (make sure you have flags up) and some of the larger fish are missing. Lots of anemone fish, coral trout, baldchin grouper. Corals are wide spread with lots of sponges as well. Like many Shark Bay sites it is shallow but that gives you more time to see whats about.
