The first encounter for the Serpent's Skull Adventure Path does indeed take place on a beach—the beach side of this flip mat is more or less designed for that encounter (although we didn't have room to reprint that map inside the adventure itself, alas...).
I look at this and think... 5 foot crater? Of course that's wrong... look at the trees right?
It's hard to tell because the thumbnail is so small. There's that little building down there... it just doesn't look right next to the tiny volcano.
So what's the scale?
I don't believe any of our Flip Maps have ever listed a scale you HAVE to use them at - that's really up for you to decide (who are we to say you can't use Flip Mat: Dungeon as a giant's lair with a scale of 20 ft per square?). When we design these, though, we typically assume 5-foot squares. That makes the pirate isle an easily overlooked little hideaway, and its smoking geyser just that. If you want to want to turn that geyser into an honest volcano fit for tribal sacrifices and heathen rituals, totally feel free to spin your stories that way and employ the map however works best for you.
