Fondly known as the ‘Emer­ald Isle’ of the Caribbean, this pear-shaped is­land is a trav­eller’s par­adise for na­ture lovers, divers, ad­ven­tur­ers, fam­i­lies, villa va­ca­tion­ers and hon­ey­moon­ers. The for­mer cap­i­tal city (the star at­trac­tion) Ply­mouth, is buried in vol­canic ash, a trans­for­ma­tion that likens this Bri­tish Over­seas Ter­ri­tory to a modern-day Pom­peii. In con­trast, the rest of the is­land flour­ishes with green moun­tains, world-class na­ture, hik­ing trails, de­serted dark sand beaches, un­touched reefs and a friendly charm rem­i­nis­cent of the way the Caribbean used to be. Montser­rat of­fers a unique niche of ‘res­i­den­tial tourism’, boast­ing some ex­clu­sive ac­com­mo­da­tion, all of which pro­vides a serene and com­fort­able life­style with all the ameni­ties for a laid-back, Caribbean is­land get­away in this wellkept se­cret.
