During a violent volcanic eruption, hot magma flowed into the ocean and formed many hills. Over time the edges of these hills were eroded by waves, leaving the steep cliffs we see today. We can tell the eruption was violent as rocks of many different sizes can be found within the cliffs. In volcanic islands such as these, there is a constant battle between sea and volcano.

Cinder cones of various sizes are buried here
