Utila volcano is a volcanic vent that has produced a small lava flow and pyroclastic cones on the small island of Utila in the Carribean Sea off the north coast of Honduras.

Background:

The island of Utila is the easternmost and lowest of the Bay Islands at the southern edge of the submarine Bartlett Trough. Utila is covered by a thin layer of Holocene basaltic rocks at its eastern end. Basaltic lavas and tuffs were erupted onto a coral-capped erosional surface.
Stuert Hill (also spelled Stuart Hill) is a pyroclastic cone that was constructed at the center of the volcanic terrain, and Pumpkin Hill is a small littoral cone located along the NE coast of the island. The high point of the island is Pumpkin Hill, which rises only 74 m above sea level.
