The story of Cochineal starts with an extinct volcano. All that is left above sea level is an arc of rock, left behind when the volcano last blew (it's the explosive kind, like Mt. St. Helens). The sand is mostly made of crushed sea shells, built up over millenia.
Cochineal is home to two sleeping turtles, one adult and one baby, located next to each other on one of the many spits.
