Eroded granite. The action of waves over countless millennia has shaped the hard granite into these sculpted formations. This is the tropical island of La Digue, part of the Seychelles islands of the Indian Ocean. The Seychelles islands formed some 200 million years ago when India and Madagascar split off from Africa. They are unique as the only granite islands in the world, as well as being the oldest islands in the world. Many such sculpted granite boulders and outcrops are found along the beaches of the Seychelles.
