Prästens Badkar (The Priests Bathtub)

When thinking of a volcano, one probably envisions a giant mountain, with tufts of smoke rising from the top. This is not always the case however, especially if the volcano is created on a sandy beach and is also underwater. 

The Priest’s Bathtub is the result of an artesian aquifer erupting millions of years ago. An artesian aquifer is a source of water that is trapped between two impenetrable layers of soil, like clay. This puts pressure on the source and if it mounts, the water will break through at the weakest point, spraying up and becoming a spring.
