    There is much to learn about Volcanoes. My shallow knowledge had me thinking they erupt and spew rocks, boulders and ash and then lava flows. But there is so much more complexity to this beautiful wrath of nature...rock formations vary depending on how the rock is affected by the heat, pyroclastic flows (something I previously had no idea about), and the fallout from the dome is a force of nature that can evolve and move long after an erruption anytime heavy rain falls. Seeing and learning about the complexities is a must.

    One of the best places in Montserrat! We had our kids with us this trip and summer is definitely hotter than winter, so we opted to take a boat ride to the beach. Shane from Scuba Montserrat did a great job of helping us snorkel off the boat and from the beach.

    Great stop if you are visiting Montserrat for the first time. The video was very informative (about 20 min) and they have a lot of stuff in the hallways to look at as well. I won't lie, every time we have gone here (a couple times over 10 years) the front desk person seems annoyed we are there. They need to find a friendly, outgoing person who enjoys answering questions and interacting with tourists.

    The water can be enjoyed every day but if you want to connect with the locals then visit on a Sunday. Even better if it coincides with a Buss a Lime event as the grill will be going and the music pumping. This is another regular hang out spot for my family.

    Like the other trails on Montserrat you 'can' do this yourself, unguided, but it has the potential for may wrong turnings, with few signs (even getting to the start of the trail from Hilltop Coffee House can be tricky). Doing it with a guide such as Scriber, as we did, is really recommended and allows you to revisit and know the route to follow. It is steep in places and obviously the difficulty is not just your own fitness, it also varies according to weather - its a rain forest so expect rain in some months and paths are uneven and can be slippery. Don't expect a well signposted trail as per footpaths in the UK, nor a highly prepared and marked trail with picnic places as per the US - its a hiking trail as hiking should be!

    Another reason to take a guide is to get the best understanding of local flora and fauna, including friendly tarantulas (in a hole in the middle of the path), and the trails titular bird, the oriole.

    We loved every last second, ending watching humming birds feed. Take a guide, and go!

    Rendezvous Beach may be more secluded, but for regular beach trips, this is the best spot on the island. The sea was calm this trip so we could finally snorkel off each end of the beach. And as expected, we had the beach to ourselves almost every time!

    Enjoyed the fruit trees & other flowering plants. Staff was very friendly & enthusiastic. They were happy to share information on local fruit and provide is with samples and tips on eating. Our teenagers enjoyed this unexpected treat.

    Get over there to see it and mourn the loss of their once bustling airport, now under a deep layer of ash/mud. You'll get a back-side view of the volcano.

    There is little words that can describe a visit to the island of Montserrat. The history, the people and the fantastic natur. If you want peace and quiet this is the place to go. The island and people are slowly recovering from the disaster in 1995.
    All in a humble way with respect and dignity.

    Visit Little bay and have a chat with the locals. Book a taxi and drive to the end other end of the island and visit the old capital. Make stops at places like Runaway Ghaut.

    When the museum is open to visitors there are really great exhibitions to engage you. I was able to see the March exhibit to commemorate the 250th slave uprising. I've never appreciated the power of writing and history as I did on that day. Check with the national trust to see when they have upcoming showings.

    The island offers many different hiking environments all of which are expertly navigated with James 'Scriber' Daley and his Scribers Adventures. So worth the money and time!

    To get to this 1/2 mile trail in Woodlands, turn off the main road onto Cedar Park Loop and take this road to the very end to where this trail begins. You can also access the Oriole Walkway from here. It’s a pleasant fairly easy walk through the forest and at the end you will find the Montserrat Water Works as well as some agricultural land where bananas papayas and coconut are growing.

    It took us about 1 hour and 10 minutes to hike both ways—that’s lots of shade and water beaks. Once you find it (look for the metal trailhead sign beyond the concrete/ shipyard areas), the trail is easy to follow. Expect some steep challenges just in the other side headed down to the beach. Take advantage of the rope handles installed!

    Once in the beach, enjoy!
