TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation


Isla Zacatillo lies only 2 km off the eastern tip of El Salvador in the Gulf of Fonseca. The low, roughly 3-km-wide island is crudely rectangular in shape, but has a peninsula extending to the NE. A steep escarpment truncates the western side of the island below its summit. NNW-SSE-trending faults cut lava flows on the island. The smaller nearby island of Martín Pérez to the SE is also of Pleistocene age.
