The shoreline of the Island featured several bays and coves. Their geology was a classic example of solidified lava streams, thus indicating the Island's volcanic origins. Several of the bays were named on Rousseau's maps and notes.

The Cove (the southwestern bay)[]

Coco Bay[]

  • Rousseau named this Bay on the south side of the Island after the large quantities of coconuts that could be found there.
  • The tail section survivors and raft group came upon the bay while they were following the shore of the Island to the middle section survivors' camp. However with Sawyer's life at stake, Eko made a decision that this would take too long, and they instead risked crossing through the center of the Island, despite their fear of the Others. ("Abandoned")
  • The same scene was shown again in a flashback. ("The Other 48 Days")
  • Adjoining Coco Bay are steep cliff faces, hiding the cliffside cave.


  • Much of these scenes were filmed at Lana'i Lookout coastline near Hanauma Bay.
  • Desmond's shoreline gull capture ("Par Avion") scene was filmed at a different although similar-looking location, specifically Oahu's Ka Iwi coastline.
