Babuyan Claro is classified by volcanologists as a stratovolcano with an elevation of 843 m (2,766 ft) and a base diameter of 920 m (3,018 ft).
It has one hot spring called Askedna Hot Spring which is located at the southern basal slope of Babuyan Claro. It has a temperature range of 44.6 to 50.2°C. The water in Askedna hot spring is slightly acidic and the silica content is relatively high since the spring flows directly from lava flow deposits. The spring water can be classified as near-neutral sodium chloride brine.
Babuyan Claro has four morphologically-fresh volcanic edifices: Mt. Cayonan in the south, Mt. Naydi and Mt. Dionisio in the southeast and Mt. Pangasun, a stratovolcano which has two very well-preserved craters 300 and 400 m in diameter.
Babuyan Claro has erupted on four occasions in historical times: in 1831, 1860, 1913 and 1917. All eruptions were either strombolian or phreatomagmatic.
