Pulau Alang Besar (E Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

Pulau Alang Besar, or Pulau Halang as it is also referred to, is situated off the eastern coast of Sumatra in Riau Province, Pabupaten Bengkalis. The island and associated coastline lie at Kuala Rokan.

This small mangrove island and the nearby coastline contain extensive habitats of significance for waterbirds, crocodiles and local fisheries.

Pulau Alang-besar, about 25 miles SE of Tanjung Pejudian, lies in the entrance of the Sungai Rokan.

The approach to this river is fouled by mudbanks. Off Tanjung Belanda, the E entrance point, and Tanjung Sinaboi about 16 miles ENE, the coastal bank dries out from 2.5 to 6 miles.
A shoal, with depths of less than 10m, then extends about 26 miles NW from this section of coast and about 25 miles N from Pulau Alang-besar.
