Covering an area of 27,750 sq. km (10,710 sq mi), Haiti is the 3rd largest country in the Caribbean, behind Cuba and the Dominican Republic. It occupies the western third of the island of Hispaniola and consists of two peninsulas, separated by the Gonave Gulf.

The highest point is Pic La Stelle in the Massif De La Selle. It stands at 8,793ft (2,680m). Its position has been marked on the map by a yellow triangle.
Haiti has the 2nd longest coastline (1,771km/1,100mi) in the Caribbean, with Cuba having the longest La Gonave and La Tortue are it’s most significant islands.
Lake Azuei and Lake of Miragoane are the lakes of note. The only major river is the Artibonite; it rises in the Dominican Republic and flows across the border into Haiti. There are a few dozen smaller rivers and hundreds of (small) streams.
