Top Destinations in Montserrat

Known as modern-day Pompeii of the Caribbean, Montserrat is a true symbol of resilience. Several destructive volcanic eruptions have scarred it, but the island found a way to showcase its beauty uniquely. The country offers long black-sand beaches, picture-perfect rainforests, mountainous terrains, and rich wildlife. If you are up to discover the untouched sceneries of a tranquil island, Montserrat is a must-visit place for you.

Soufrière Hills Volcano

Soufrière Hills Volcano is both the symbol of destruction and survival in the country. The stratovolcano is filled with many lava domes causing the eruption in 1995 to be catastrophic. The eruption left Montserrat's southern half uninhabitable and buried Plymouth's former capital city. Today, Soufrière Hills is one of the island's star attractions for tourists. No matter how tragic the eruption it caused the country, it's still a factor in how strong and resilient this island is now.

The volcano is located under the exclusion zone. For a long time, the government prohibited any local or tourist from going there. They now allow group tours, given professional guides, and local authorities. Visiting parts of Plymouth's buried city and seeing the 3,440 feet volcano up close are must-tries. The guides will also impart to you stories behind the catastrophic event. The best time to visit it is during the dry season between June and December.

Woodlands Beach

It is famous for its long coastline with glimmering black-sand beaches. Woodlands beach is located in front of Lake St. Lawrence, so you will have a peaceful time to chill surrounded by magnificent bodies of water. Tourists can use its spacious campgrounds and picnic area for large events and parties because up to 2000 people can occupy it. The place is perfect for hosting group retreats and family outings.

The Caribbean Sea is also ideal for adventurous tourists who want to dive and ride the big waves. Besides that, Woodlands Beach is also a nesting ground for turtles, so you can even witness cute hatchlings emerging in their eggs. Sunsets are also glorious in this part of the island, so if you are looking for a quiet place to chill in, this place is also a great choice. The best time to hit the waves in Woodlands beach is between June and August.

Montserrat Volcano Observatory

If you cannot handle the strain of hiking to the exclusion zone to see Soufriere Hills, visiting Montserrat Volcano Observatory will be advantageous to you. Group tours will be more enjoyable because you can organize them with your friends and family. You can hire a local guide with you as you visit the observatory. Taking in the full view of the exclusion zone and the volcano from afar is also safer than going to Plymouth.

The main highlight of visiting the observatory is the 20-minute informative video that shows how the whole island and its people were affected because of the catastrophic eruption. Besides that, you can also meet the scientists who monitor the island's seismic activities. A team of scientists is also giving free lectures about Montserrat's volcanoes. You can come any time of the year, but remember that they are closed on the weekends.

Jack Boy Hill Viewing Facility

Jack Boy Hill Viewing Facility offers visitors a private space and excellent vantage point to view the Caribbean Sea and the whole island. The picnic area is open for all. You can sit for a while and appreciate the burst of color in the garden brought by various flowers. Telescopes and fixed-binoculars are also available in the facility to see the stunning view of Plymouth's ruins, Soufriere Hills Volcano, and the Caribbean Sea.

Are you hungry after your escapade around Montserrat? Worry not, because Jack Boy Hill Viewing Facility has an accessible barbeque pit. Bring your cooking tools and ingredients and munch on some treats while basking in the mesmerizing views around you. After eating, you might want to burn some extra calories. Hike in the mini trail located in the area to explore more and see the lush and colorful rainforest. Visit the facility between June and December.

Rendezvous Bay

If you have visited Montserrat's black-sand beaches, take a change of sceneries and visit the island's only white sand beach. To get to Rendezvous bay, you can choose to go there by hiking the steep 1.13-kilometer trail from Little Bay. For those people who cannot endure the hiking trail, you can go there by renting kayaks in Little Bay.

The bay is surrounded by towering cliffs where several migratory and tropical birds fly around. You can be at peace with nature as you relax and lay down on Rendezvous bay's white sandy beach. Sunbathe, swim, and snorkel all you want because you don't have to pay any entrance fee in the area. Ready some food and drinks because there are no nearby facilities. Avoid coming between July and November because it's hurricane season.

Runaway Ghauts

Do you ever wonder how rainwater pours down in the mountains? At Runaway Ghauts, you can witness one of the many wonders of nature. Ghauts are the steep ravines that send rainwater pouring down from the mountains into the sea. Runaway Ghauts is named after a story of the confrontation between the English and French. The French are believed to be the one who runs away. The site is located in the north of Salem.

Tourists can drink from the spring water because the legend says that those who drink from the ghauts will return to Montserrat again. To reach the site, you will have to take a 10-minute hike at Runaway Ghaut Trail. Tourists enjoy the hike because there are beautiful tropical trees and lush vegetation in the perfect area for those who want nature-tripping. It would be best to tour between June and December.

Centre Hills

In contrast to Montserrat's tragic exclusion zone on the southern part, Centre Hills is covered by the vibrant tropical rainforest and rich biological diversity. The 34 gorgeous species of land birds and migrant songbirds inhabit Center Hills's area. You can also find the national bird of Montserrat, Oriole, here, together with other beauties such as the rare forest thrush, bridled quail dove, and mangrove cuckoo.

This place is considered the most diverse birding area in the Caribbean. Besides the tropical birds, it is also home to various reptiles, amphibians, and bats. It is 700 meters above sea level, and around, there will be magnificent views of dwarf forests and evergreen valleys for you to appreciate. Visiting Centre Hills is best between June and August. If you're planning to drive here, don't go beyond the speed limit to avoid accidents.
