Batti Malv island (India)

Characteristics

Description

Batti Malv Island (or Kuono), which lies about 17 miles SSE of Car Nicobar, appears wedge-shaped from the offing. It's an uninhabited island that covers an area of 2 square kilometers.

This very small island rises to a densely wooded peak about 73m high. The NW end of the island is low, but rocky cliffs lie on the other sides. Reefs appear to extend 0.5 mile off the NW, SW, and SE sides of the island.

The 40m curve surrounding the island lies up to 5 miles SE and 2.8 miles N of the island.

A light is shown from a metal framework tower, 12m high, on the N side of Batti Malv.
Batti Malv Island has been reported to be a good radar target up to 11 miles.
