Located right off Malapascua Island, Lighthouse reef is - rather obviously - named after the nearby lighthouse. It’s a nice easy and shallow dive site very suitable for beginners. It offers the wreck of a small banca, as well as good chances to spot sea horses. It’s a favourite spot for night diving, as you’re almost guaranteed to see mating mandarin fish, if your guide knows where to look and if you make it to the site at sunset. Also the very rare and hard to spot blue ringed octopus occasionally make an appearance here.
