Wave erosion rapidly modified the once smooth coastal margin of the lava delta that erupted in 1952-53. The vent that produced the flow is to the left at the base of the light-colored tuff cone that also formed during the eruption. The Delta Lávico flow extended 700 m out to sea and formed a peninsula about 1.2 km wide.
