Nonda volcano is an andesitic stratovolcano on Vella Lavella Island in the Solomon Islands. Its lava dome inside a well-preserved crater is the youngest volcanic edifice on the island.
There are no confirmed historical eruptions, but inhabitants reported "smoke" and explosive activity in the vicinity of Nonda Hill at the time of a major earthquake in 1959.

Background:

Vella Lavella Island is thought to consist of overlapping extinct volcanoes of Pliocene to possibly Pleistocene age, but based on the fumarolic activity it is included in the list of potentially active volcanoes of the world. The Paraso thermal area has solfataras, hot springs, and boiling mud pots.
