The island was named by Captain Cook on one his voyages. It has two active volcanoes and the rich ash from the volcanoes is fertile growing material for the lush forests. Culture is widespread and important to the islanders and dances are held in private and in public for various occasions. There are magnificent examples of wood carving and this type of art is widely recognized. The island has no hotels and accommodation is in bungalows. The two volcanoes are in the middle of the island and both make a habit of exploding at regular intervals. Way back in 1913, so vast was the lava flow that the island’s population had to be evacuated.
