In Montserrat, wherever you are, you're never far from nature. Turtle watching is an intriguing activity for nature lovers. The island has several black sandy beaches which serve as nesting sites for three of the world's seven species of sea turtle: the Green Turtle, the Hawksbill and the Loggerhead. The turtle nesting season runs from August to September so make plans to be here at that time. Get in touch with the Montserrat National Trust and ask about their turtle watching treks. To witness a sea turtle emerging from the dark waves and heaving herself onto the sand to lay her eggs is nothing short of inspirational.
