After the strong eruption of Mount Valken, which happened in 1871 and all coastal area of ​​the city of Qatarman was flooded into the sea. This flood covered a local cemetery near the Bonbon village.

The Sunken Cemetery surfaced at low tide before a series of volcanic eruptions happened 1948-1953, which moved the earth further down to the sea.

To mark the location of the sunken cemetery, a large cross was installed in 1982. Today, it not only serves as a clear reminder of the island. It is also a diving-snorkeling site.
