Its area extends over 140 acres and it is mainly tree-filled. Its height at any level is not more than 11 feet above sea level. It lies just 200 meters from the mainland and is connected to it by means of a causeway built in 1965 by Robert Dunfield.
There is folklore connected to this island which states that the island has a hidden treasure. There are beliefs that there is buried treasure and unexplained objects on this island.

Since the 1850s several excavations have been carried out in an attempt to reach the treasure but all have fallen flat.
