Karimun islands (Riau-E Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

The Karimun Islands consist of Great Karimun (Pulau Karimunbesar), Little Karimun (Pulau Karimun Ketjil), and a number of off-lying islets.

They differ in character from the low marshy islands of the E coast of Sumatera, being hilly with fertile soil, and are well-populated. They are surrounded by reefs and shoals, many of which are completely or partly dry.

They are located just off the E coast of Sumatra, guarding the southern entrance of the busy Straits of Malacca.
