Mischief Island

Mischief Island, an atoll, is one of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.  Mostly formed by coral reefs, they are beautiful, but with few inhabitants. Mischief Island is currently the focus of an ownership dispute between China and the Phillipines. This photo was taken June 8, 2015.
