Chowra island (India)

Characteristics

Description

Chowra Island, which lies about 24 miles SSE of Batti Malv Island, is generally low but rises to a 104.5m high rocky pinnacle at its S end.

The island looks like a hat from the offing. Sanenya, the principal village, lies on the NE coast.
It has area of 8.2 sq km with a population of two thousand people.
Reefs extend about 1.5 miles from the NW side of the island.

A shoal, with a least depth of 2.4m, lies between 2.5 miles NW and 4 miles NNW of the N point of Chowra Island.
Depths of 16.5 to 18.3m are found between the shoal and the island reef.

Chowra has no safe berthing due to the coral formation around the island but anchorage can be taken, in depths of 16.5 to 18.3m, abreast of Sanenya Village.. There is no source of drinking water on this island.
