Top 3 Montserrat Resorts & Hotels: Explore the Emerald Isle

Montserrat resorts offer an opportunity to experience what it’s like to live on a tropical island; its pristine paradise provides you with a flavor of island life that is difficult to get in other more famous resort towns in the Caribbean.

Montserrat is a small Caribbean island that many people don’t know about. It’s located just south of Antigua and north of St. Kitts, so it makes for a leisurely getaway if you’re in the area!

Due to the devastating natural calamities that had hit the island, there aren’t many options for accommodation. However, since then, tourism has boomed, and people are now eager to take tours around active volcano areas that offer breathtaking views from high points throughout the island.

You can stay at one of these Montserrat resorts and hotels and feel as if you are part of the community while enjoying excellent amenities!

Things to Do in Montserrat

Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat
Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat
  • See the Soufrière Volcano

In 1995, the Soufrière Hills Volcano erupted, destroying a significant portion of Montserrat, including the once-charming city of Plymouth. The volcano is now part of an exclusion zone, although you may arrange a guided and police-escorted visit.

  • Visit the former Capital, Plymouth

Plymouth, the island’s former capital city, was the most devastated when the volcano erupted back in 1995. Plymouth is now utterly deserted, lying in ruins, coated in ash, and waiting for you to explore. Take a mind-blowing tour of the town’s remaining structures.

  • Rendezvous Bay

The tranquil beach at Rendezvous Bay, tucked between towering cliffs, is Montserrat’s lone stretch of golden sand. Swimming, diving, and snorkeling are popular activities in the area. The trek to this peaceful stretch of shore is challenging, so most guests arrive by boat or kayak.

  • Hiking

Hiking enthusiasts will be in ecstasy on an island crisscrossed with beautiful hiking paths, the majority of which begin in the Centre Hills and run through the lush forest alive with birdlife. You should look out for Montserrat’s national bird (the Montserrat Oriole) and national flower (the Heliconia).
