Murdeshvar islet (W India)

Characteristics

Description

The coast between Honavar and the entrance to the Bhatkal River, is low and sandy with some rocky points. A ridge, reaching an elevation of about 150m, extends about 2 miles along the coast from a position about 3 miles S of Honavar.
The ridge is covered with brushwood and contrasts strongly with the sandy shore; the cliffs, 46m high at its base are prominent.

Murdeshvar, an islet 32m high, lies about 6.5 miles S of the above ridge.

A rocky island, 9m high, lies about 0.8 mile SW of Murdeshvar at the W end of foul  ground extending from the coast.

Hawkins Reef, awash, lies with its SW extremity about 1 mile NW of Murdeshvar and about 1 mile offshore.

Dart Rock, with a least depth of 2m, lies about 1.8 miles WSW of Murdeshvar.
