Montserrat (Caribbean): what to see on the island of the Lesser Antilles


What to see in Montserrat, where it is located, volcano eruption, holidays and tourism on this island of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean.

Where is it

Montserrat is an island of the Lesser Antilles of volcanic origin located between Saint Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Guadeloupe.


Much of this island was devastated by the eruption of the Soufrière volcano which began on 18 June 1995 and which forced a large part of the population to leave.

Later there were other eruptions that made much of the territory uninhabitable.

When to go

For those who love alternative holidays Montserrat is definitely a destination to take into consideration which shares natural beauty also present in other Caribbean islands.


Being an island of volcanic origin, many beaches are of black sand and some of them can only be reached via paths or by sea by renting a boat.

The beaches of Rendezvous Bay and Lime Kiln Bay, where snorkelling and scuba diving deserve to be remembered.


Through a vast network of trekking paths it is possible to visit the rain forests, banana plantations and enjoy the splendid views that can be admired from the cliffs located overlooking the sea.

Thanks to the willingness of local foresters to provide indications, it is easy to spot the Golden Oriole of Montserrat, an endangered national bird, along with other rare species of animals.
