Isla Espiritu Santo, 32 km from the city of La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, is made up of alternating layers of black lava and pink volcanic ash. On the eastern side, steep cliffs drop sheer into the water. The western side of the island is dentate, with a series of rocky points separated by shallow bays; small mangrove swamps appear as bright red areas on the false color infrared composite. Beaches are composed of fine coralline sand. The image was acquired on June 7, 2002, covers an area of 24 x 20 km, and is located at 24.5 degrees North latitude, 109.9 degrees West longitude.
