Pulau Breueh (Aceh - N Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

Pulau Breueh (pulau Brouch), about 20 NM S of pulau Rondo, is the largest of the westernmost island off Ujung Masam Muka.
It attains a height of 685m at Ceumo (Tjeumo), a summit in the middle of the island.

This is a rugged island, with several bays affording anchorage according to the prevailing monsoon.
A light is shown from the N extremity of the island.

The coast is generally steep and craggy from the sea, but in a few places ledges and rocks extend 0.25 mile offshore; there are sandy beaches within the bays and along almost all the S coast.

Vessels approaching Pulau Beueh (Pulau Breueh) from the W are cautioned to give it a wide berth, because of the tide rips and strong currents off Northwest Island (Pulau Benggala).

Lho Leuen Bale, on the NE side of Pulau Breueh, is nearly 1.5 miles wide between its entrance points, with a depth of about 33m on a line joining them.
Ujung Puneus (Ujung Peuneu), the N entrance point, is precipitous, with a depth of 34.7m close-to. A strong tidal current usually sets N past Ujung Puneus.

The bays on the W side of Pulau Breueh are not available during the Southwest Monsoon.
