Looking for a frenetic pace? You'll realize happily that it's missing when you hike entrancing nature trails, or sip a tropical drink under a beneficent sun, or drive winding mountain roads which rise into lush mountain rainforests and trace miles of hidden coastline. Beguiling black-sand beaches (and the popular white sand Rendezvous Beach) provide a sense of tranquility and ample elbowroom whether you are by yourself or with that special someone. At night the stars reach down to share their magic, and there is always a cooling breeze from the tradewinds which centuries ago carried sailing ships across the sea from Europe.
On Montserrat, guest accommodations range from intimate guesthouses and small boutique hostelries to grand oceanfront villas with pools and full staff. Montserratians are among the most naturally hospitable people on earth and everyone you meet will want to make your encounter with the island and its unparalleled beauty an experience you will treasure.
The bold colors of flamboyant trees, the brilliant red hibiscus, the magical scent of blooming frangipani all become vivid memories you'll carry with you until the pull of the ‘Emerald Isle of the Caribbean’ brings you back again and again.
World class fishing, more than 30 pristine dive sites, rare and lovely bird-life - including our national bird, the rare Montserrat Oriole - and mouth watering local cuisine, especially our national dish ‘Goat Water’ and the famous ‘Mountain Chicken’ all add to the many pleasures of a visit to Montserrat.
Truly unique to Nontserrat is an active volcano that scientists call one of the most interesting in the world. Visit the Montserrat Volcano Observatory and learn about it, its history and its future. See the awesome legacy of this force of nature from safe vantage points around our modern-day Pompeii, Montserrat's old capital, Plymouth.
The island's new airport opened in 2005 Montserrat is proud and happy to be connected once again to international flights from around the world by a convenient daily schedule of fixed wing air service provided by WinAir.
