The flat-topped Cerro El Faro cone (upper right) lies across a low isthmus at the southernmost tip of Isla Isabel. It is seen here across the Acantilado Mayor Bay from Cerro del Mirador, the high point of the small 1.5-km-long island. Wave erosion has eroded the flank of Monte Transverso to the left. The two cones are connected by a lava flow.
