The first photos of a new volcanic island near Tonga have gone viral.

According to ABC, hotel owner GP Orbassano recently visited the island, which emerged in the Pacific after an eruption in January. 

"We had a beautiful view of the volcano, which inside is now full of green emerald water, smelling of sulphur and other chemicals," Orbassano told Radio Australia. "The view was fantastic."
