Bengkulu road (W Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

Bengkulu is the capital of the Bengkulu district and the headquarters of an administrator. The Bengkulu River mouth discharges into the bay about 2 miles NE of the town.

Bengkulu Road may be considered as lying between Ujung Coko (Ujung Parit) 4.5 miles N of Bengkulu and about 8 miles S of Bengkulu, forming a large bay on either side of the town.

The inner road, with depths of 7.3 to 11m, lies NW of Bengkulu and within Pata Sambilan Reef.

The NW winds which prevail from October to April, when strong, cause a heavy swell and breakers in the roadstead; during the Southeast Monsoon the inner road is perfectly safe.
