Saw the volcano from Jackboy Hill, the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, and some other places in the south. It is often obscured by the clouds, but an amazing sight. When the clouds clear out we could see the volcano venting.

I visited the Soufriere Hills Volcano and surrounding area as part of a day tour. What an amazing sight! The volcano can be seen smoking and you are able to view most of the surrounding area from the vantage point. We did go in and around the abandoned town and visited the black sand beach formed by the eruption. A... More

A must-visit for volcano fans; not only the live volcano but a town completely obliterated and covered with ash and the lava flows covering the old runway. Fascinating.

The Soufriere Hills volcano on Montserrat in the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean is a fantastic opportunity to watch island building and recent city destruction up close and personal. The Montserrat Volcano Observatory nearby is the best place to start to learn more about the history of eruption on Montserrat. A rare clear day view reveals the lava dome, which... More

To see what nature is capable of first hand is a unique experience and one I will never forget. This is like having a sleeping angry giant in your back garden.

A visit to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory gives you a front row seat to view The Lady as residents sometimes call Soufriere Hills Volcano. You can also see videos of the early eruptions and tour the visitor's centre to view spectacular images that you must see to believe.

We stayed just across the former Behlam River and had amazing views of the volcano from the house. It was usually clad in steam/smoke but we had a few clear days.

We took a tour with Sun of Montserrat Island Tours and saw the Volcano from several vantage points. It amazed me to realize that the "clouds" around the volcano is actually gases billowing out and up the side of the volcano! Once I saw that, it was a chilling reminder of how active this is!

Excellent: Seeing the result of the volcano on the island was fascinating and eerie at the same time. A must see if you are visiting Antigua or a nearby island. Wish we had seen the film at the observatory. Sad to see two thirds of the island uninhabitable. Glad we visited. Amazing what nature can do! Disappointed: Booked a tour... More

This is one of the most active volcanoes in the region and to see it from the observatory and various lookouts around the island is quite amazing. The remains of Plymouth are fascinating to tour. Hire a local guide for better access. Definitely worth seeing.
