Didicas volcano, 22 km NE of Camiguin Island, was a submarine volcano prior to beming a permanent island in 1952. The first recorded submarine eruption of Didicas was in 1773. A 400-m-wide crater formed during the 1952 eruption, and two eruptions have occurred since then at a crater on the northern side of the island. Photo courtesy of PHIVOLCS.
