Gilbanta (also spelled Gilibanta) is a submarine volcano off the western coast of Komodo Island. There are vague reports suggesting activity in 1957.

Background:

The small island of Gilibanta was reported by a pilot to be destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1957, but the report has not been confirmed by scientific sources and is considered doubtful (Hantke, 1962). Ratman and Yasin (1978) map the island as a Quaternary volcano with a caldera open to the north forming Ouingke Bay.
