Volcanic coastline. This is part of the coastline of the island of Lanzarote. The island is volcanic in origin, with volcanic cones seen on the horizon amid barren but beautiful landscapes of volcanic rock. There are some 300 extinct volcanoes on the 60-kilometre-long island. Some of the rocks have been eroded to form beaches, while others form cliffs rising out of the sea. The most recent volcanic activity was in the 18th and 19th century in what is now Timanfaya National Park. Lanzarote, part of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, is 110 kilometres off the coast of North Africa.
