Here is something fun and inconsequential to think about over the Thanksgiving break: islands on islands on islands, or, as they’re known, “triple islands.”
Triple islands are a relatively recent geographic phenomenon du jour, likely aided in popularity (at least on some level) by the successful, though somewhat-laughable and oft-meme’d, blockbuster film, Inception. There are at least three recognized triple islands on the planet: one in the Philippines known as Vulcan Point, and two in Canada — one on Victoria Island, part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, and one on Glover Island in Newfoundland. Vulcan Point in the Philippines can be read about in more detail here, which includes a nice zoom-in slideshow of the island. Below I’ve compiled zoom-in Google Map images of the two in Canada, for which information is a little more scarce.
