EXPLORE MONTSERRAT

Montserrat’s landscape is of mysterious and startling contrasts. Zoom in and discover the people, history and wildlife that make this island hum.

lets get planning

HOW TO GET HERE

Although there’s no shortcut to get to Montserrat, it’s actually pretty easy. Both airline and ferry service depart from our closest neighbour, Antigua. Choose a flight from your city to Antigua, and then book a 20-minute flight from there to Montserrat. Alternatively, as a less expensive option, you may book the ferry: at minimum, a 90-minute ride. No shortcut, but no regrets either.

POPULAR TOURS & EXPERIENCES

Rendezvous Beach Picnic or Party

Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the island’s only white sandy beach with a nice picnic basket filled with local goodies. Or make a truly magical memory and have a day tailored to suit your desires!

Hike to the Petroglyphs

The most amazing thing happened in 2016. Hikers on the Soldier Ghaut Trail discovered Petroglyphs credited to the first known people on Montserrat, the Amerindians. These markings in the rock are thought by archaeologists to be between 1000 and 1500 years old. They are a must see!

Buried City Tour

Montserrat’s most popular tour takes you to the island’s capital, Plymouth, which is like a city frozen in time. Although many of the buildings have been buried by ash and mud flows from the volcanic eruption in 1995 and 1996, some rooftops and other structures remain visible and stories abound. This tour is available only with a certified tour guide

Soufriere Hills Volcano Boat Tour

By far the most popular water-based tour in Montserrat! Take an exhilarating cruise along the west coast from Little Bay all the way to the Buried City of Plymouth – the modern day Pompeii. Learn about how the island was created and about Montserrat’s natural history. You will experience amazing views and discover up close how the island is actually growing!

Runaway Ghaut

Montserrat has some of the purest water you can hope to find anywhere. Make a stop at Runaway Ghaut and take a drink of the natural spring water to form that unbroken bond with the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean. Rent a car or ask your taxi driver to make sure you get to live the legend.

Hilltop Coffee House & Welcome Centre

Did you know that many of the iconic pop music albums from the ‘80s were recorded in Montserrat at Air Studios? Spend a couple hours viewing all the memorabilia of the artistes like The Police, Stevie Wonder, Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Montserrat’s national hero, Arrow, who sang Hot! Hot! Hot!

Day of Discovery

This tour lasts 6-7 hours, and it is a fabulous way to visit Montserrat for a day or to begin your holiday. In addition to the regular guided tour, your guide will show you other points of interest at your request. The tour includes admission to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory and the National Museum, complimentary drinks and door to door service from your accommodations.

Montserrat National Trust

The Montserrat National Trust is at the forefront of preserving and conserving the cultural, historic and archaeological heritage of the Island. It’s also home to the Botanical garden where you can stroll through while learning about the island’s flora. Located in Salem, you can access it very easily if you have a rental car or you can contact any of the tour and taxi companies.
