map art, Ile St. Saint Paul Island, French Southern and Antarctic Lands, Territoire des Terres australes et antarctiques fran├žaises, jfwoa

An exceedingly remote island in the Indian Ocean (together with Ile Amsterdam just 80km away), this French possession (part of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands), Ile St. Paul is only 5km at its widest. The tip of a submerged volcano, the tiny island is dominated by its caldera, forming a natural harbor. Intermittently populated by whalers and fishermen in the past (sometimes unintentionally), the island is now a nature preserve.
