The coasts of Tul range from rocky and jagged rocks to smooth sand covered beaches. The southern coasts of the island are riddled with steep, jagged cliffs that fall abruptly into the ocean. All of the coastal sands of Tul are colored a deep dark grey, due to the volcanic origin of the island. While the coasts are home to a variety of organisms, life can be hard near the oceans. Cold currents from the south bring a thick fog to the south coasts as it collides with the warmer air from the island. The ocean is harsh here as the surf crashes relentlessly into the rocky piers that make up the southern edges of the island.
