Located in the Bahia de los Angeles (Bay of the Angels), Isla Coronado (Coronado Island, also known as “Smith Island” on some maps) is just off the eastern shoreline of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, in the Gulf of California. The island is approximately 7 kilometers long, and it is dominated by Volcan (volcano) Coronado on the northern end. The date of the last eruption of the volcano is not known, but gas and steam activity was last recorded in 1539.
