Wave erosion of a tuff cone off the western coast of Isla Isabel has produced the jagged profile of the 100-m-wide southernmost sea stack in the Islotes Las Monas. The three guano-covered cone remnants forming the Islotes Las Monas lie within about 200 m of the eastern coast of Isla Isabel, which can be seen to the right.
