Clipperton Island is an isolated uninhabited coral atoll named after John Clipperton, an English pirate who made it his hideout early in the 18th century. It is located in the North Pacific Ocean, 700 miles southwest of Mexico and 1600 miles west of Nicaragua. The only atoll in the East Pacific, Clipperton's total area is about 7 square kilometers. Most of the island is no higher than 6 feet, except for Clipperton Rock, a volcanic rock formation which reaches a peak height of 69 feet. It is largely covered with scrub vegetation, with a few stands of coconut palmsand, and has a large population of land crabs. The only place to run would be on the beach.
