Tangasseri Point (W India)

Characteristics

Description

Tangasseri Point Light is shown from a concrete tower, 41m high, painted in black and white diagonal stripes, on the point. The point has been reported to be a good radar target at 17 miles.

The coast from close E of Tangasseri Point to about 3 miles NNW of it is rocky with groves of palms growing close to the HW line.

Caution: Vessels approaching Quilon (Kollam) from the N should not approach Tangasseri Point in depths of less than 20m to avoid the foul ground W and SW of the point. When the tile work’s prominent red 35m high chimney bears 044°°, steer for it on that bearing, which leads between Gamaria Rock and Pallikall Shoal.
