Literally means “Lighthouse” and Internationally known as “Northeast Cay”. It is the third largest of the Philippine-occupied islands, about 12.7 hectares. It is 1.75 miles (2.82 km) north of Vietnamese-occupied Southwest Cay, and they are visible from each other. It is located 28 miles (45 km) northwest of Pag-asa Island.
Some of the cay's outcrops are visible on its western side. It has high salinity groundwater and vegetation is limited to beach type of plants. The island is surrounded by corals. It is covered with grass and thick trees. Much of the fringing reef is above water at high tide.

IN PHOTOS: Philippines, Vietnam navies play games on disputed South China Sea island

MANILA, Philippines – It was a goodwill visit that started with a symbolic handshake. On a Philippine-occupied island in the South China Sea on Saturday, November 10, Philippine and Vietnamese navies played games in the name of camaraderie.

A total of 63 Vietnamese forces sailed to Northeast Cay in the Spratlys upon the invitation of the Philippines. It was a “return visit” to match Vietnam’s gesture in 2017, when they invited Filipinos to neighboring Southeast Cay. These are dubbed “twin islands.”

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
