Ardasier Reef, known as Guangxingzai Jiao (Chinese: 光星仔礁) in China, Terumbu Ubi in Malaysia, Antonio Luna in the Philippines and đá Kiệu Ngựa in Vietnam, is triangular shaped and lies 26km north-northeast of Swallow Reef. Ardasier Reef is 9km east of Dallas Reef, with the massive Ardasier Bank extending 69km to the east-northeast.
Ardasier Reef is steep-to, except on its eastern side where it adjoins the Ardasier Bank. Its huge areas of sandy patches have an abundance of shy Guitar Sharks, Eagle Rays, Giant Reef Rays and other intriguing bottom dwelling creatures that bury themselves in the sand.
