The Ilheus das Cabras islands are the remnants of a tuff cone located 2 km off the southern coast of Terceira Island. Only the northern half of the tuff cone remains above sea level. The cone has been eroded into two small islands separated by a narrow channel. The crater of the tuff cone faces south and is obscured from this view taken west of Ponta da Cruz on the SE coast of Terceira.
