Sawai bay (Car Nicobar)

Characteristics

Description

Sawai Bay indents the NW coast, between Keating Point and Hog Point, about 3.5 miles to SW.
Foul ground extends 1 mile N from Keating Point and 0.5 mile N from Hog Point. Sawai Village lies 0.5 mile SE of Hog Point.

The tidal currents off Sawai Bay set NE on the flood tide.

An observation spot lies on a small promontory that extends WNW from the coast about 1 mile S of Keating Point. Keating Point Light is shown from a round metal tower on the point; a racon and a radio beacon transmit from the tower.

A coral patch, with a least depth of 10.1m, was reported to lie about 0.7 mile NW of the observation spot. A 9.1m patch lies 0.8 mile WNW of the same spot.

Anchorage can be taken, in a depth of 21.9m, rock and coral over a thin layer of sand, about 0.8 mile N of Sawi Village.
Anchorage can also be taken in similar depths just over 1 mile W of the observation spot.
