Didicas Volcano is an active volcanos in the Philippines which emerged from the sea in 1952. The resulting island is located 22 km NE of Camiguin Island, in the Babuyan Islands, in the province of Cagayan, in the Cagayan Valley Region, in the Luzon Strait north of the island of Luzon, in the Philippines.
When a permanent island was formed. Didicas now consists of a small, 244-m-high andesitic lava dome about 1.4 km in longest exposed dimension. A 400-m-wide crater was formed during the 1952 eruption. The first recorded submarine eruption of Didicas was in 1773. The first recorded subaerial cone reached a height of 213 m in 1860, after a four-year-long eruption, but soon was eroded beneath the sea. Three rock masses up to 82 m high were left after an eruption in 1900. Two eruptions have occurred since 1952 at an explosion crater on the northern side of the island.

Physical Features

Didicas was initially a submarine volcano, and is classified as a dome volcano with an elevation of 228 meters and a base diameter of 1,200 meters at sea level.

Volcanic Activity

Didicas has erupted in 1773, 1856-1857, 1900, 1952, 1969, 1978 (January 6-9), and 1990. It is one of the active volcanos in the Philippines which are all part of the Pacific ring of fire.
