Isla Meanguera, located in the Gulf of Fonseca SE of Conchagüita Island, consists of an elongated line of three small stratovolcanoes of Pleistocene age. A N-S-trending graben cuts the summits of all three volcanoes. A circular crater occupies the summit of the central cone, which forms the island's high point at 493 m.
