Isla Isabel, a complex of cones and associated lava flows, forms a small 1.5-km-long island located in the Pacific Ocean 30 km off the coast of Nayarit state, Mexico. The island is seen here from the SE with Cerro el Faro cone to the left and the spires of the Islotes Las Monas to the right. Isla Isabel is a wildlife sanctuary whose rocks and vegetation are mantled with white guano. Exposures of the interior of the cones forming the island can be seen in the main island sea cliffs and offshore islets.
