Continental and Oceanic Islands and Their Beauty

Continental and Oceanic Islands and Their Beauty

Share/Bookmark


Every island has its own history and the way how it was created. The formation of such islands usually took many millions years. We can separate islands into two categories – continental islands and oceanic islands. Continental islands lie in a continental shelf of a continent. Examples are Barbados or Long Island. The oceanic islands lie outside of continental shelf and in most cases are of volcanic origin like Paul Rocks or Macquarie Island. Each island evolved into a standalone ecosystem with its own fauna and flora and unending beauty.
