Pulau Lobam (W Bintan)

Characteristics

Description

Pulau Lobam (or Loban), located about 0.5 mile off the SW part of Pulau Bintan and separated from it by a channel with depths of 9.1 to 29.3m, is highest on the W side. A group of trees stand on the NW hill, the highest of which, with a conspicuous wide flat top, is above the water.

The middle and E parts are lower and partly covered with mangroves, with mangrove lined channels running through them.

Pulau Lobam Kecil, W of pulau Lobam, is hilly and wooded. It appears as three peaks when viewed from N.
A reef, wich is steep-to, almost surrounds the islands and extends in places to the distance of 0.3 mile.
On the N side there is a narrow sandy beach and a village; another village, the houses of which may be seen from the strait, is situated on the S side of the island.
