Topography/Geography?

The chain of steep-sided islands clearly reflects their volcanic origin, with large islands and small cays jutting abruptly from the sea. Rocky cliffs alternate along the shoreline with fine coral sand beaches and the occasional mangrove lagoon. Many of the islands are ringed with magnificent reefs of brain and elkhorn coral. The offshore islands and cays are largely uninhabited. Some are protected as bird sanctuaries and turtle nesting sites.
