These islets rise out of the water and consist entirely of shells of different sizes. There is no other material (sand, stones) in the islets.

It is believed that they came here because the sailors have been dumping empty shells in one place for almost 800 years.

Edible part of the shells was consumed, but for lack of use, they preferred to dump them in one place, and over the years, modern man can observe islands, completely made of shells.
