2. Hit the hiking trails
Despite its southern haunch being almost entirely encompassed by a volcano exclusion zone, Montserrat remains a veritable mecca for hikers and trekkers.
In fact, boat loads of folk with waxed up walking boots head over from nearby Antigua each day, all eager to hit routes like the Oriole Walkway Trail, which weaves through rubber tree groves and overgrown banana plantations.
A more challenging hike is the Blackwood Allen Trail, which crosses steep meadows of ferns between the center of the island and little Salem, while the beautiful Rendezvous Nature Trail offers panoramas over the Caribbean Sea and access to one of the island’s few white-sand beaches.
