Tarasa Dwip (India)

Characteristics

Description

Teressa Island (Tarasa Dwip), roughly crescent-shaped and low in its central part, lies 6.5 miles SE of Chowra Island. The island has a surface area of 101.26 km².

It appears as two separate islands from the offing. The N end of the island is 250m high. Hinam Village lies 4.5 miles SSE of the N summit and is only visible from seaward on a NE bearing. Laksi Village, which consists of some huts amongst the trees, lies 4 miles SE of Hinam Village.
The village is hard to identify from seaward. Bengala Village lies on the E side of the island about 2 miles S of its NE extremity. Karawa Village lies 3.5 miles farther S.

Reefs extend over 1 mile from the N and S ends of the island, but less off the W coast.

On 26 december 2004, the Tsunami has damaged Teressa islandthat has been split into two pieces.
