Description

Katchall Island is separated from Camorta Island and Nancowry Island to the NE by Revello Channel, which is about 3.8 miles wide and apparently free from dangers, except for a detached 12.8m patch which lies about 4.5 miles NE of the SE end of Katchall Island.

The island is densely wooded and rises to a height of 227m in its central part.

Katchall Island has been reported to be a good radar target up to 18 miles.
Depths off the W side of the island are very irregular. Some 16.5 to 18.3m patches lie up to 4 miles off this coast.

On 26 December 2004, several islands were heavely damaged by the Tsunami.
