The island is shaped roughly like an arrowhead, and is dotted with numerous buildings that serve as "places of protection" for Atrus's various Ages. On the northern end, a mountain serves as an observatory point, where the access keys for these places of protection can be found. At the foot of the mountain is the library, and a planetarium which features the stars visible on [[Stoneship]]. A pine forest covers the central and southern areas of the island. A log cabin in this area controls the tree-shaped elevator that accesses [[Channelwood]], and a collection of pillars surrounding a raised reflecting pool cut a path through the middle of the trees. From there, the terrain slopes down to a sandy beach at the southernmost tip. A [[Clocktower (Myst)|clock tower]] stands just off shore, accessible by a gear-shaped bridge which can be raised and lowered. There is a dock on the eastern shore, with a sunken ship containing the link to Stoneship moored beside it. A tunnel leads from the dock into a [[fore-chamber]] beneath the island, where a holographic [[imager]] can be found. North of the dock, on the northeastern corner of the island, is a wide platform fitted with enormous gears, which house the link to the [[Mechanical]] Age. A 1950s-era "Buck Rogers"-style rocketship lays on its side off the northwestern shore. When properly powered by generators buried in a cave beneath the western shore, this ship provides access to the [[Selenitic]] Age.

The living quarters for Atrus and his family are not shown in any of the ''Myst'' games, and according to [[RAWA]], the island seen in the games is smaller in size and complexity than the real place. Other places of protection, and non-essential areas like the family's living space, were reportedly removed.
