Out of the remains of the mud and ash following the last eruption, Montserrat is rebuilding. Growth is taking place in its tourism industry and visitors to the island are now eager to take tours of the active volcano where an ominous dome over the volcano's crater rebuilds and periodically collapses sending great plumes of ash into the air. Much of the island is within the 'volcanic exclusion zone' where islanders have determined it is unsafe to visit and this includes the old capital of Plymouth, which is accessible only by sight, from afar or from the air.
However, the volcano adds a great twist to typical tropical beach activities. Divers can see unique coral formations that have grown healthier from the volcano's substrates. Sun lovers can relax on soft volcanic sand at a number of beaches. Even nature walks have lush vegetation from the fertilised soil.
In homage to its Irish ancestral history, it’s often known as the Emerald Isle. Although the Caribbean is an unlikely place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the national holiday highlights Montserrat’s unique charm. Unlike Columbus, who sailed right past the islands, you can opt to set sail for Montserrat, the small, peaceful green-carpeted "Emerald Isle of the Caribbean", as has attracted a dedicated set of second home owners for decades and is fast becoming a popular holiday and destination choice.

The beautiful island of Montserrat has a distinctly explosive history that has drawn intrepid travellers and investment property owners, to its dangerous, yet beautiful secluded shores. From a major hurricane which swept over the island in 1989, damaging 90 percent of the buildings, to the volcanic eruption in 1995 and 1997, it is surprising that this small island has survived. Yet, it’s not only surviving but it is now thriving!Read More
