There is a salt lake or lagoon between the Cape Palmas river and the vicinity of the Cavalla.
This lagoon forms a commodious harbour, once the bar has been crossed.
On the western side there is a large lagoon, separated from thesea by a spit of sand.
after forming the wide lagoon known as the Albufera de Elche.
There is little doubt that the original lagoon population depended for its administration, as far as it had any, upon the larger cities of the mainland.
