Saleaula Lava Field

Saleaula Lava field is one of the most popular sites with visitors. Main features of the lava field include the Virgin’s grave, the LMS Church and stretches of lava rocks which are evidences of the destructive eruption in 1905.


Molten lava from Mt Matavanu eruption buried 5 villages under this wide barren lava flow. Half buried churches, a virgin grave and lava mounds (imprints of tree etc) can still be found as you walk over this fascinating geological expanse.
