Vot Tande is an extinct volcano, located 50 km north of Ureparapara Island in the Banks Islands.

Vot Tande contains the oldest rocks in the Banks Islands.

Vot Tande is also called Vet Tagde. The island is 800 m long and 300 m wide with an area of 0.24 km² with a summit of 64 m.

At the northern end there is a platform, discovered at low tide, which extends 100 m long towards the sea.

Lava samples indicate that eruptions occurred in the marine environment 3.51 million years ago.
