The eastern edges of the island are exposed to higher winds, consequently they have fewer sand beaches, much rougher seas and a rocky coastline.
The island's interior features some scattered rolling hills, including Hooiberg, at 165 me (541 ft), and Mount Jamanota, the highest on the island at 188 meters (617 ft).
