Suvali Point (E Cumbay - W India)

Characteristics

Description

Suvali Point, the E entrance point of the Gulf of Cambay, is fringed by the drying coastal reef which extends about 1 mile W of the point.
Tapti Light is shown from a white circular stone column, 27m high, on the point; a tomb lies close SE of the light structure.
The coast from Suvali Point to the entrance of Tena Creek, about 8.3 miles N, is fringed by a drying coastal reef. About 5 miles N of Suvali Point there are some sand hills, known as Suvali Hills.

Between the entrance to Tena Creek and the entrance to Sena Creek, about 9 miles N, the coast is fringed with thick groves of palmyra trees. The Kim River, about 2 miles farther N, dries in its entrance.

Tena Bank-Outer Bhagwa Sand, one continuous narrow bank nearly parallel with the coast, lies between the entrance to Tena Creek and the S entrance of the Kim River. Tena Bank, the S part of which dries, is a continuation of Outer Bhagwa Sand, the N part of which dries in patches. Bhagwa Channel, E of the above bank, is used only by small vessels with local knowledge.
