The island of Montserrat forms part of the Leeward Island archipelago in the Caribbean Sea. Often referred to as the 'Emerald Isle of the Caribbean', the island offers a wealth of memorable sights to witness. Perhaps discover the Soufriere Hills Volcano, previously thought dormant until it became active in 1995.
