They are situated north of Charlton Island,[1] and southwest of Paint Hills Islands, Pointe au Huard and Andrew Moar Bay (52°48′N 78°48′W / 52.8°N 78.8°W / 52.8; -78.8),[2]

In 1950, Thomas Henry Manning studied unusually high tide driftwood strand lines on Solomons Temple's northern exposed beach.[4]
