It has an area of 47 square kilometres and is dominated by a 965 metre tall active volcano. Although the island was evacuated in 1990 due to the threat of volcanic activity, the last eruption was in 1917. A settlement has since been re-established and as of 2005 there were nine inhabitants on the island. Photographed on 1st April 2003.
