In the southern part of the British overseas island of Montserrat, there is a complex volcano Soufriere Hills. For several centuries, the volcano had remained dormant. In 1995, it became active – half of the island became empty, its capital Plymouth was completely destroyed. Abandoned cities and towns began to resemble the exclusion zone under the thick layer of ash.
Wildlife of the island and its volcanic landscapes attract more and more travellers. Tourist infrastructure is gradually developing. Montserrat is ideal for a quiet rest. Its main feature is the beaches with crystal clear water that attract lovers of fishing and scuba diving. Hiking trails and viewing platforms to see volcanic activity are popular on the island. The best time to travel is from November to May.
