The Providence Atoll comprises the islands Providence, St Pierre and Ile Cerf.

Providence Atoll occupies an extensive bank of shallow water well known for its profusion of fish. Cerf Island, a true coconut island with an almost cartoon-like fringe of green palms, lies at the southern end of the Providence bank.

St. Pierre, some 32km west of Providence, is a small, raised coral island occupying its own small submarine bank and is a popular roost and breeding site for sea-birds.
