This orthorectified image focuses on part of the Tiburon Peninsula, which encompasses all of Haiti’s southern coast and forms a large headland that extends westward towards Cuba. Mountains and hills can be observed on the peninsula, particularly on the right side of the image.

Visible near the image center is Lake Miragoâne, located one kilometer southeast of the city of Miragoâne. It is one of the largest natural freshwater lakes in the Caribbean. The lake is 12 km (7.5 mi) long and 25 km² (9.7 mi²) in area.
