Inner Islands

The 43 inner islands are comprised of rocky, grey boulders that jut unexpectedly from the ocean and rise to create a relatively mountainous inland area. These islands are generally surrounded by a narrow coastal strip and white beaches.

  • They are covered with verdant mist forests of virgin granite peaks
