Pulau Lingga (E Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

Lingga Island is the largest and most populated of the Lingga Islands.  It has an area of 889 km² and is located south of the Riau Islands off the east coast of Sumatra. It is 4 miles N of pulau Singkep and has a NW and SE direction. It largely consists of alluvial flats.

The NE coast of Pulau Lingga is formed of numerous hillocks, from 61 to 91m high, which gives it a uniform appearance, but neither it nor the adjacent islets are safe to approach at night. The hills near the N end of the island are 202m and 226m high.

The W coast of Pulau Lingga trends N about 4 miles from Tanjung Labuandadong to Pulau Pulon. The latter point is very conspicuous, and from it the coast trends NNE for 12 miles to Selat Dasi.
