This is another amazing dive site within the Komodo National Park and is named, well, because it is near the lighthouse. This site is a drift dive because of the current but there are many rocky parts of the reef that can be explored by divers. The reef itself is on a gentle slope and it is covered with large beautiful sections of table corals. Soft corals mingle in amongst the hard coral and the black corals, with sleeping sharks underneath them.

If you decide to investigate some of the rocky parts of the reef, amongst the many crevices you can find an abundance of macro life. Nudibranchs, shrimp, and lobster are most common but there are also juvenile emperor angelfish.

Larger fish are just as abundant with the usual suspects of the region prowling around; Napoleon wrasses, morays, groupers, sharks, giant trevallies, and turtles all have taken refuge in the reef.

The reef has a spot where there is a convergence of currents; at this point, divers need to be careful and find somewhere to hold on whilst looking around. At the end of the dive, there is a coral garden, which is a cleaning station for Manta Rays and makes for a great end to a fantastic dive site.
