Tanjung Siapiapi (E Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

The coast between Tanjung Jumpul and Tanjung Siapiapi, about 9 miles SE, is bordered by a mudbank with depths of less than 1.8m. This bank extends up to 5.75 miles off the former point and 2.5 miles off the latter point.

There are some fishing huts but few objects for identifying the low, mangrove covered coast. The mountain ranges inland are usually visible in clear weather.

Tanjung Siapiapi is a low welldefined point overgrown with mangroves of moderate height and is clearly visible up to a distance of 10 miles on SE and NW bearings.
The mud bank S of the point extends about 2.2 miles offshore and is steep-to.
