    Whereever there’s volcanic activity in a large body of water, volcanic islands form. The link above is of someone on a yacht viewing a new island form.
    One popped up near Iceland in the ’60s.

    Lo’ihi’s probably going to turn into an island in roughly 90 years.

    So, yes, new islands have formed in recent history.
