The Mundua Islands are the peaks of several basaltic volcanoes which form Mundua, Wingoru, Garove, and Narage islands.
The largest volcano forms the westerm tip of the 7 km long Mundua island and Wingoru island immediately to the west. It is located 85 km NW of Willaumez Peninsula in New Britain, Papua New Guinea.

Background:

The crater of Mundua volcano is flooded by the sea through narrow channels on the northern and southern sides. Wingoru island are remnants of crater walls. 5 small cones occupy the central and eastern sides of Mundua. 2 of these have well-preserved craters and are of Holocene age.
