Between the entrance to Tena Creek and the entrance to Sena Creek, about 9 miles N, the coast is fringed with thick groves of palmyra trees. The Kim River, about 2 miles farther N, dries in its entrance.
Tena Bank-Outer Bhagwa Sand, one continuous narrow bank nearly parallel with the coast, lies between the entrance to Tena Creek and the S entrance of the Kim River. Tena Bank, the S part of which dries, is a continuation of Outer Bhagwa Sand, the N part of which dries in patches. Bhagwa Channel, E of the above bank, is used only by small vessels with local knowledge.
