Cape Negrais (Burma)

Cape Negrais (Burma)

Characteristics

Description

Cape Negrais, the seaward extremity of a spur of the Arakan Yoma range, in the Bay of Bengal, is fronted by conspicuous cliffs which rise about 0.8 mile inland to a high summit. The cape has been reported to be a good radar target up to 24 miles.

The coast between Cape Negrais and Mawdin Point, about 6 miles SSE, consists of a series of low densely-wooded hills. In the vicinity of Mawdin Point these hills have some conspicuous, reddish slopes of driven sand which leave well-defined edges of dark foliage near their summits.

The coast between Cape Negrais and Mawdin Point is fringed by reefs and shoal patches which extend up to 1.3 miles offshore in places.
