Description

Karimun Kecil or Little Karimun, separated from the NE side of Great Karimun by a deep channel about 0.5 mile wide, is a bold island, 377m high.

In the NW approach to the channel between Great Karimun and Little Karimun are two islets, Nangoi, 39m high, about 1.2 miles W of the NW end of Little Karimun,and Tantun, a fairly steep-to islet, about 1 mile SW of Nangoi.

In the channel close to the SW side of Little Karimun is an above-water rock, which narrows the channel to about 0.3 mile.
