Biliran volcano comprises the whole 20x35 km Island of Biliran which is formed by a group of lava domes. It is located across the narrow Biliran Strait from the northern tip of Leyte Island.
Biliran volcano is at the northern end of a 170 km long volcanic chain extending SSE to Panaon Island.
The only known historic activity took place on 26 September 1939 and consisted of a phreatic explosion accompanied possibly by a debris avalanche. Ash fell in Caibiran town 12 km to the E.
There are many fumarole fields, hot springs, mud pools and thermal areas on Biliran.
