The islands past spans from the top of the volcanos to below the surface, making underwater topography that will blow your mind. The island suffered 100’s of volcanic eruptions around the 1700’s which created lava streams that froze in the water creating caves and caverns that have become home to barracuda, angel sharks, moray eels, groupers and much more!
