Pulau Enggano (SW Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

Pulau Enggano, the southernmost of the large islands fronting the W coast of Sumatera, lies about 60 miles W of Sumatera.
Pulau Enggano is about 20 miles long and about 10 miles wide.

A range of hills runs through the island from NW to SE. The hills extend down to the sea along the SW and S but the island is lower and more level toward the NW and NE sides. It is densely wooded, unbroken by a field of grass or a trace of cultivation.

It can not be said to have a beach, as the trees reach to and overhang it. A quantity of coconut trees are seen along the coasts; the sea breaks furiously on the drying coral reefs which fringe the island.

There are heavy breakers on the reefs even in the calmest weather. The island forms part of Benkulen Province.
