The intrusive granite forms hills in the northern and central parts of the island. Slate, probably belonging to the Kanchanaburi series, crops out in the northwestern headlands. Most of the island is less than 100 meters above sea level and is composed of an elevated coastal plain underlain with alluvium and coralline marl or limestone. (Brown et al, 1951)
