Wurlali volcano (also called Damar, Daam, Dammer) on Damar Island, Indonesia, 375 km NE of Dili, East Timor, is an andestici stratovolcano and the SW-most historically active volcano in the Banda arc. It has a 5 km diameter caldera and 2 craters at the active northern end of the caldera.
Hot springs occur southwest of the volcano near the beach. Fumaroles are present on the south flank and at the summit vents, where large sulphur deposits are found and being exploited. In places, liquid sulfur can be observed boiling in some of the vents.

1993 earthquake and landslides
In January 1993, a tectonic earthquake triggered large landslides and steam emissions, that caused 4000 people to flee the area. One of the evacuees died of shock.
