Pulau Bakung (Bakong) lies close to the NW end of Pulau Lingga, from which it is separated by Selat Dasi, and has some fairly high hills. The SW coast of the island trends in a NW direction, the shore being fronted to a short distance by a reef.
Close to the NW extremity of Pulau Bakung lie a number of islets and reefs, extending about 8 miles NW, of which Karoti is the northwesternmost.
The space between that island and Pangele, the N end of Pulau Bakung, is blocked by islets and reefs.
