Getting into the water at the right side of the Lighthouse is a dive site named Bannerfish Bay. You get there by continuously swimming outward and going left, where you will see an area of seagrass with a small car wreck and tires in the middle. Seahorses, nudibranches, pipefish, shrimp and crab are hidden in the grass. Continue until you reach a small reef, which has schools of bannerfish, hence its name.

Bannerfish bay is located just right of the Lighthouse. Using the same entry point as the Lighthouse, go left down a gradual slope to about 12 metres. Here you will swim over a large seagrass area which is abundant with macro life; seahorses, anglerfish, nudibranchs, rare ghost pipefish, moray eels, stonefish, scorpionfish, crustaceans and lots more are hidden in the seagrass. It is quite common to see the resident turtle feeding on the seagrass. Right in the middle of it all you will see a small car wreck and several tyres. Swim a little further and after the seagrass you will find a small reef filled to the brim with schooling bannerfish, which is how the dive site got its name.
