The small 1.2 x 2.8 km wide island of Tafahi is a conical stratovolcano that rises more than 500 m out of the ocean about 7 km N of Niuatoputapu. No historical eruptions have been reported, but its youthful morphology suggests recent activity. Photo by Paul Taylor (published in Taylor and Ewart, 1997).
