The article states that Malpelo is 314 mi off Columbia's coast, but then says it's 300 km offshore. In fact, it appears to be about 235 mi or 379 km from the nearest point on the Colombian coast, or 285 mi (459 km) directly west from the coast. My measurements were done with Google Earth and may not be accurate, but in any case 314 mi is not compatible with 300 km. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Unconventional (talk • contribs) 09:37, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
a circular area of radius 9.656 kilometres (6.000 mi)
That is the diameter of the Malpelo Nature Reserve, which includes ocean surrounding Malpelo Island. As a result, this nature reserve is significantly larger than the island. Paul H. (talk) 13:21, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
