Visited when the volcano was spewing out black smoke and very fine ash. Wear a hat otherwise the fine volcanic ash will get into your hair. Worth the visit just to have a photo of an active volcano.

On exit from the ferry terminal turn right and walk along the sidewalk until you come to a large building - that's a hotel. Keep walking until you see the visitors centre. Inside is a very good geological display of volcanos and description of the...More

The Lava Promenade offers beautiful views of the harbour and volcano. It runs by the ocean side and is a pleasant unchallenging walk which offers a peaceful respite from the busy city. It is about 5 mins walk from the ferry terminal. There are toilets...More
