Mariveles Reef, known as Nanhai Jiao (Chinese: 南海礁) in China, Terumbu Mantanani in Malaysia, đá Kỳ Vân in the Vietnamese and Mariveles in the Philippines, is 59 km slightly east of north from Swallow Reef, dries at high tide enclosing two large lagoons in a figure of eight formation with a sand cay between them. This small cay, 1.5–2 m high, and some isolated rocks are just visible at high water.

The Royal Malaysian Navy has maintained a naval station called "Mike Station" since 1986.[1]
