Be among the few dozens who have gotten the chance to visit Earth’s newest island. The unnamed and uncharted island is just 28 miles off the coast of Tonga’s capital, Nuku’alofa, and is the result of an explosion by the Hunga Tonga volcano in January 2015.
This island has quickly became a new number to check off your bucket list, and if you want to check it off of yours, you need to hurry. While there is crystal clear water and beautiful black sand beaches, this small island is predicted to only last a couple of months due to future volcanic activity.
This uncharted territory will give you the ultimate feeling of adventure. Check out some of the rare footage below, giving you a glimpse into the island’s 10 caves and beautiful offshore waves.
Adventurers would need to take a boat and follow a map to get between Hunga Tonga and Hunga Ha’apai, two other South Pacific islands. The new island is around 500 meters across and 250 meters high.
