Nila stratovolcano forms a small 5x6 km island in the Banda Sea, Indonesia. It has a low caldera breached at sea level on the south and east. In its center, Laworkawra, a 781 m high vegeted cone, forms the most recent volcanic edifice. Fumaroles are located on the SE flank of the cone. Historic activity were summit and flank fissure eruptions. An eruption in 1932 from a fissure that extended from the summit to the SE coast produced heavy ashfall and forced the abandonment of Rumadai village.
Nila is cut by a deep erosion gully on the SW side. Submarine vents are found north and west of Nila Island, where gas bubbles are seen escaping at depths of 20-30 m.
