Kolombangara's summit is truncated by a 4 km wide caldera with 4 peaks (Mt Veve, Rano, Mbatuvana, and Tapalamenggutu). The island is part of the southern boundary of the New Georgia Sound; to the northwest the Vella Gulf separates it from Vella Lavella and Gizo, while to the southeast New Georgia lies across the Kula Gulf. West-Southwest of Kolombangara is Ghizo Island, upon which the Western provincial capital Gizo is located.
Kolombangara is heavily forested and has only few inhabitants, which mostly live in 2 villages, Ringgi and Mongga.
