It’s hard to believe that this beautiful island is unheard of to most of the world’s population, but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful. This island nation is a British Overseas Territory and is in the Leeward Islands. The Leeward Islands, for your information, are part of the Lesser Antilles island chain, and together with other islands that were, at one point or another, a colony of the United Kingdom, known as the West Indies.

The island of Montserrat is approximately 16 km long and 11 km wide, making it approximately 100 square km in size. With 40 km of beautiful, rugged coastline, Montserrat is often referred to as the “Emerald Isle of the Caribbean”, as it reminded initial explorers of the Irish coast.

Coincidentally, many of its initial settlers were Irish themselves, so when other nations traded with Montserrat, they were dealing with Irish descendants on a coastline that looked similar to Ireland. Due to its location, small size, and the small local population, Montserrat is one least visited tourist destinations in the region.

The main town on the island, Plymouth, was build close to the island’s best natural harbor. It also happens to be very close to a formerly dormant, or inactive, volcano. About 20 years ago though, life on this island paradise changed forever. The Soufriere Hills Volcano began to erupt and is now considered active.

The capital, Plymouth, together with two-thirds of the island, are now uninhabitable. The capital had to be moved to Brades. The population at the time was almost 12,000 but, due to the also immediate effect of the eruptions, much of the population was evacuated and many never returned. Today, the population stands at close to 5,000 strong, with Brades the new capital in the Little Bay area of the island, seeing most of the growth.

The island of Montserrat is popular with tourists who are looking to get off the beaten path and explore an idyllic paradise without having to share it with anyone else. The island now specializes in ecotourism, volcanic tourism, hiking, nature watching (mostly terrestrial and sea birds), and scuba diving. With regards to scuba diving, it has some of the most pristine reefs in the whole of the Caribbean, so divers will be spoilt with amazing experiences and almost zero crowds.

The island is also popular with tourists who are interested in seeing what the Caribbean used to be like. Said differently, it’s the Caribbean without all the globalization. Just sun, sand, surf, and maybe a bit of volcanic eruption. Montserrat is not so easy to get to. The main airport on the island was destroyed in the volcanic eruptions of the 1990s, so a new airport was built near the island’s new capital and government center, Brades.

The only way to get to Montserrat by air is by flying from the island of Antigua in Antigua and Barbuda. Getting to Antigua and Barbuda from North America or Europe is not difficult. Travelers have many options for commercial airlines that can get them that far. To get to Montserrat, visitors will have to switch to a smaller, regional airline.
