Krakatoa (alternately spelt as Krakatau or Krakatao) is a volcanic island. It is located in the Sunda Strait. The Sunda Strait is situated between the islands of Java and Sumatra and Indonesia. The main island of Krakatoa is also the name of the island group to which Krakatoa belongs, and is also the name of the volcano. It is also known as Rakata. It has erupted several times and had disastrous consequences. There was a series of massive explosions on August 26 and 27 in the year 1883. The last eruption was in the year 2001. Krakatoa stands at a height of 813 metres of 2, 667 feet.

Two-thirds of the island of Krakatoa was destroyed in the eruption of 1883. There have been several new eruptions at the Krakatao in subsequent years. In 1927, an eruption at the island created a new island named Anak Krakatau (which is translated as the child of Krakatau.)
