Details for: Didicas
An aerial view shows the small, 244-m-high island of Didicas. Didicas volcano, 22 km NE of Camiguin Island, was a submarine volcano prior to 1952, when a permanent island was formed. A 400-m-wide crater was formed during the 1952 eruption. The first recorded submarine eruption of Didicas was in 1773. Two eruptions have occurred since 1952 at an explosion crater on the northern side of the island. Photo courtesy of PHIVOLCS.
