(Redirected from Clarión)

The Revillagigedo Islands (Spanish: Islas Revillagigedo) or the Revillagigedo Archipelago are a group of four volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, known for their unique ecosystem, called Socorro, Clarión, San Benedicto, and Roca Partida. They lie approximately 390 km (240 miles) southwest of Cabo San Lucas, the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, and 720 to 970 km (450 to 600 miles) west of Manzanillo. The islands are under Mexican federal jurisdiction and were designated as the largest marine protection area and marine reserve in North America in November 2017. In July 2016, the Revillagigedo Archipelago were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
