DNR-410 is located at just west of Diamond Point near the entrance to Discovery Bay. DNR-410 is mostly rocky substrate. Not much is known about clam populations on this beach, but surveys conducted in the 1980s found evidence of small populations of butter clams, horse clams, native littleneck clams and cockles. A better harvest alternative to DNR-410 is South Diamond Point.
