A conspicuous fort stands on a projecting rocky point, about 26m high and 0.8 mile ENE of Burmana Point. This point forms the W side of the entrance to the Vaghotan River. The fort is obscured from the S by the higher land in that direction.
Depths in the harbor decrease regularly from about 12m in the entrance to the E shore of the bay.
Depths in the fairway between the point on which the fort lies and a cliff, 19m high, about 0.7 mile ENE, are about 6.5m, but decrease sharply farther within the river to 3.7m.
Anchorage can be taken anywhere in the harbor, according to draft, during good weather.
