Grenada was formed by a submarine volcano about two million years ago. Evidence of this violent birth is apparent along the southern coastline and extends up the eastern or windward side. The rugged, black and brown rock is constantly battered by the Atlantic Ocean. The combination creates a picturesque seascape. This view captures the mouth of Mount Hatman Bay to the east of Lance aux Epines Peninsula. It is very similar to the sibling cove of Prickly Bay to the west.
