...if they're dead. They will by definition never be higher than sea level. That's a job for vulcanism.
Actually, these are dead volcanoes and fully submerged. What remains are the coral reefs that built up around its shores and now form the whole island.
The volcanoes gradually sink over many million of years, and the reef builds up; but nowhere near as fast as the current level of sea rise.
