View of the Shepherd Island group - Nguna Island

Vanuatu's islands tend to come in two varieties: Volcanic islands with sharp peaks and coral atolls. The view from the top of Nguna island shows a number of the former. The sharpest island, to the lower left, rises about 1000 feet straight out of the ocean. It's unforested, inhabited only by nesting seabirds.
