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.

We had a chance to make a day trip to see the Soufriere volcano, and the beautiful island of Montserrat, while on a trip to Antigua & Barbuda. We took the Caribe Sun ferry day trip, which was priced at $155 per adult, $100 per kid & included a guide, tour of the island & lunch. We were driven up... More

We were staying in Antigua and decided to take a ferry to Montserrat where I had heard about the live volcano. I had never seen anything like that. Well, the island is beautiful, the people are so friendly, and the volcano is the most terrifying and amazing thing I have seen. We were taken just downslope where we took photos.... More

THIS a real volcano, I like being there when it was sleeping, I would not like to have been there when it spewed mud and lava and killed 19 people. I would not have liked to be on the Pan-Am Flight that crashed in 1965.

People come to Montserrat for 2 things - solitude, and the volcano. Neither disappoints! I highly suggest driving around to view the volcano from different angles. One of the best views we had while there was from the pool area of the former Montserrat Springs Hotel. Absolutely fabulous! The two days we were there, the dome was shrouded in clouds,... More

Og to the MVO (Montserrat Volcano Observatory), og Down to Belham Valley, and across it, up on the other side. Go round the island to Jackboy Hill and get an impression from there, including the devastating sight of the old capital Plymouth, now buried deep under debris, lava and volcaic rocks. Be awed at the forces of nature.

This is a not to be missed experience if you travel to Montserrat. The tour offered by Sunny Lea explains in detail about the volcano and how it has changed life here.

Since 2010 the volcano has been fairly quiet, still fascinating to look at, but not interfering with the life of the island. Don't think that you go to Montserrat just to see the volcano, it is a beautiful island and there is loads to do and see. Everybody is so friendly and welcoming, there is wonderful scenery, lovely beaches where... More
