Description

The Merodong group of islands lie to the W of Pulau Mesanak, between it and the Temiang group. The former group comprises six islands, separated by channels unsuitable for navigation and there is no reason in venturing among them or between them and Pulau Mesanak.

Merodong, the N island, is 186m high and its conical peak is one of the principal landmarks for making Selat Riau (Riouw Strait). Rocks, dry at LW, extend 0.8 mile NNE from the NW end of Merodong, on the S side of Selat Merodong (Selat Merodong).
