Wave erosion rapidly modified the once smooth coastal margin of the lava delta erupted in 1952-53. The vent for the flow lies at the upper left at the base of the light-colored tuff cone also formed during the eruption. The Delta Lávico flow extended 700 m out to sea and formed a peninsula about 1200 m wide.
