Lighthouse Reef - Cebu Province Attractions

Lighthouse Reef

There are few places in the world where you can see mandarinfish. And even better, in Malapascua's Lighthouse Reef, the rare and psychedelic mandarin fish are virtually guaranteed.


Dusk is a time most people rarely dive. However, it is one of the best times to observe marine life because of the increased feeding and mating activity. Come and see the exotic mating dance of the male and his adoring females.


At full moon witness coral spawning as well as other marine life mating. Seahorses, scribbled and banded pipefish, juvenile sweetlips, banded sea snakes, hermit crabs, and varieties of shrimp can be regularly spotted in this site.


As day turns into night catch some interesting nudibranchs and a variety of cephalopods - reef squid, bobtail squid, starry night octopus, the occasional blue-ringed octopus and cuttlefish.


Also near this sight is a World War II wreck.
