VISITORS TO MONTSERRAT-TODAY HAVE SAID

Stephen B. recently said, "I've just come across your website, it is superb!!"

Carole B. living in London said, "My parents left Montserrat in the early 60s and have only been back a couple of times. I’m planning to visit next summer during the school holidays with my husband and two of my children so was pleased to find your site. It’s so informative. I’m really enjoying looking through the pages – it’s probably the best site I’ve seen on Montserrat. As I was scrolling through the site it really piqued my children’s interest and they are now really looking forward to our trip (and believe me, they are hard to impress). If you’re there next July/August I’ll look you up. We’ll be finalizing travel and accommodation in the next few weeks. Take care and thanks once again. It’s great to know people love the island so much and are taking such care of it."

R.N. Thompson at Durham University in Northern England said, "For the record, I think that your website is a BRILLIANT addition to Montserrat life and its information base for potential and actual visitors."

Mike M. from Wisconsin now with a home in Woodlands said, "You both are doing a terrific and worthwhile thing here as I talk with the Montserratians they are learning about computers and can see what they do. I hope more come to me for help so I can get their businesses on line. Its a thing of the future. Thanks again."

John R. from London, Ontario, Canada said, "I have enjoyed going through your website. I wish I had found it before our trip to the island. It is very informative. Thanks"

Montserrat, West Indies
Known as the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean, lush and mountainous Montserrat may be one of the Caribbean's best kept secrets. Up until the beginning of its Soufriere volcano's eruption in 1995, Montserrat developed as a residential tourism island--its foreign visitors buying or renting private homes in an extensive area on the Caribbean side of the island. In a very unusual and thoughtful development, there were 400 homes on spacious grounds owned, visited and rented by people from the United States, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, and England.

Montserrat made international news when its centuries long dormant volcano became active again. That event and a more destructive eruption in 1997 initiated evacuations and interventions by international aid agencies. Many local people left and made homes elsewhere in the world and many of the foreign home owners looked to other Caribbean islands for their holidays. A population once over 10,000 now is about 4,000. The Soufriere volcano is still active and is monitored. The island's population and commercial enterprises have relocated in the northern third of the island while the southern part of Montserrat is now home only to Soufriere.

Though Montserrat is no longer making international news, it remains a calm and secure place of fabulous beauty. And it now has a most unique attraction--Soufriere volcano. For years Montserrat was a refuge where stars like Elton John and Paul McCartney could relax and mingle comfortably in the larger community. John spent a lot of his time greeting and saying farewell to a string of lovers at the ferry dock, finally meeting the woman he married at Air Studios. Air Studios, owned by Beatle Musical Director, Sir George Martin, provided state of the art recording equipment in this relaxed Caribbean setting. Not only favored by Elton John, Air Studios drew Paul McCartney's Wings, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins and other big name musicians to Montserrat. Air Studios was destroyed in a hurricane in 1989, but Sir George Martin stayed involved with this beautiful island. Martin together with his wife and other major donors raised funds for construction of a state of the art concert hall/conference center; it is their gift to the island of Montserrat. To see more commentary on Air Studios, please click here to go to our Sights and Sites information.

If you have more current information than is on the site, write to us and let us know. Aside from creating an informational website, we hoped to stimulate communication across the island and to help everyone in Montserrat to live better lives.
