A light, with a racon, is shown on the point. A group of palmyra trees on high red ground, about 1 mile N of the light structure, forms a good landmark which can usually be seen above mist which may obscure the lighthouse.
Muttam Point has been reported to give a good radar response at 18 miles.
Crocodile Rock, a dangerous sunken rock about 3 miles SW of Muttam Point Light, is the outermost danger; the sea does not break over it in calm weather. Adunda Rock, 5m high, lies about 1.3 miles SW of the point. It is difficult to identify from seaward, and foul ground extends about 0.2 mile NNW from it.
Kota Rock, 6m high and steep-to on its W side, lies about 1.3 miles WNW of Adunda Rock. Vessels should not pass inside of Adunda and Kota Rocks.
