Today half of the this incredible Caribbean island is uninhabitable, and about two thirds of the population have left the island.
From Antigua you will fly direct to the East Coast of Montserrat. The entire flying tour of Montserrat is over the “exclusion zone”, which is an area that has been designated off limits to habitation or ground transportation, so the best way to see the volcano is by helicopter.
Montserrat is referred to as the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean, and the Pompey of the Caribbean.
The good news is Montserrat’s north end of the island is open to tourist. After years of constructions, actually, ‘starting from scratch,’ the future capital, Little Bay is being to pulsate. Montserrat is a destination to put on your list.
