The sawn mountain of the Caribbean
Montserrat is a must for those who love volcanoes!
The island of Monteserrat is British overseas territory and is located in the Caribbean. Neighboring countries are: Antigua, Nevis and Guadeloupe. The country has a tropical climate between 23 and 30 degrees with no strong dry or rainy periods. Volcanism shapes the island and two active volcanoes make two thirds of the island a restricted area.
Holidays in Montserrat
Tours to the blocked north have been possible on the island since 2005. There are also excursion boats to the north, where they can also call at the bay. Shipping around Montserrat is sometimes risky, as there are no precise nautical charts.
Located in the Caribbean Sea, you can count on pleasantly warm water all year round. The area is therefore ideal for diving and sailing trips and beach holidays. The region is also very popular among deep-sea fishermen.
