Bolan Jiao(Petley Reef)

Bolan Jiao(Petley Reef), which lies to the northwest of Zhenghe Qunjiao(Tizard Bank) of Nansha Islands(the Spratly Islands), was invaded by Vietnam in 1988 and occupied by it since then. It is oval in shape, about 1700m in length, 1300m in width, and lies from the east to west.

 

From 2014 to 2018, a new watchtower was built in the west of the former one.
