Coin de Mire, also called Gunner's Quoin, measures just 65 hectares and lies 8 km north of Mauritius. Gunner's Quoin is near Ile Plate, also called "Flat Island". Gunner’s Quoin is an ancient basaltic volcanic cone. The volcanic origin of the island can be seen clearly in the natural boulders, in areas of bare rock fringing the coast and the frequent and well preserved volcanic extrusions.
