The 35-km-long volcanic island of Biliran, located across the narrow Biliran Strait from the northern tip of Leyte Island (left), contains many prominent andesitic lava domes. Five fumarole fields are scattered throughout the roughly 35-km-long island. The only known historical activity was a phreatic explosive eruption at a thermal area in 1939.
