Pulau Pandang (E Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

Pulau Pandang (3°25'N., 99°45'E.) is almost entirely surrounded by a coral reef with some above-water rocks. A foul area was reported to lie about 9 miles E of the island.

The island is hilly and covered with virgin forest, nice for small treks. There is no formal accommodation, only the staff of a navy post and a lighthouse. The best place for fishing.
