Ambrym Island

One of the volcano islands in Vanuatu

This island is essentially the remains of a large volcano, whose 12 kms wide caldera is in Ambrym island’s centre. Two active volcano cones, Mt Benbow and Mt Maroum, sit side by side on the edge of this large volcano caldera. These two volcano cones are amongst the most active and most voluminous volcanoes in Vanuatu.

The main attractions on Ambrym island are its two active volcanoe cones

A triangle shaped island has two airstrips, one on East and one on West costs of the island. Both aircraft and helicopter flights are available from Port Vila. The volcanic ash makes this a “black” island, although when you go inland you will find a lot of green vegetation growing from the ancient lava flows.
