Montserrat offers glimpse of Caribbean before mass tourism

Brits considering booking cheap flights to Montserrat can experience a Caribbean island that hasn't been touched by mass tourism

Brits considering booking cheap flights to Montserrat can look forward to experiencing a Caribbean island that hasn’t been touched by mass tourism.

This is according to Kylie Jenkins, a public relations consultant to the Montserrat Tourist Board, who said that it’s possible to find complete peace and quiet as the island has a population of just 4,500 people.

"Montserrat is reminiscent of how the Caribbean used to be before mass tourism," she explained.

"Visitors should take a boat tour around Plymouth and witness the capital up close; this is the only way to really understand what the volcano did."

July marks the 15th anniversary since the island’s Soufriere Hills Volcano began erupting after lying dormant for more than 400 years.

Ms Jenkins went on to say that Montserrat has become an excellent destination for divers, bird watches, hikers and rum enthusiasts.

The island’s airline, FlyMontserrat, was established last year. It recently announced plans to increase its number of flights between the island and Antigua.
