Godavari point (Andhra Pradesh-E India)

Characteristics

Description

Godavari Point is the N extremity of a low sandy spit and narrow sand bank, which forms a part of the coast N of Hope Island.

The coast between the mouth of the Gautami Godavari and Godavari Point, about 24 miles to the N, is very low and intersected by many small outlets.

The "Godavari point" overlooks the entry point into the Bay of Kakinada and the Kakinada harbor.

Sacramento Shoal lies off the mouth of the Gautami Godavari.

Tides

The current between Godavari Point and Bimlipatam lies farther offshore than off Sacramento Shoal, but its velocity is less. Inshore of this current, slack water is usually found. Tidal currents will sometimes be experienced close offshore.
