Montserrat é um pequeno território britânico ultramarino do Caribe, constituída pela ilha homônima. Tem fronteiras marítimas com Antigua e Barbuda a noroeste e nordeste e com Guadeloupe a sudeste. A capital, Plymouth, foi evacuada quando o vulcão Soufrière Hills, então adormecido, ficou ativo, em 1997, mas ainda é oficialmente a capital do território, embora o governo tenha sido transferido para instalações provisórias em Brades Estate, no norte da ilha.

Montserrat is a British overseas territory located in the Leeward Islands, part of the chain of islands called the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. This island measures approximately 16 km (10 miles) long and 11 km (7 miles) wide, giving 40 kilometres (25 mi) of coastline. Christopher Columbus gave Montserrat its name on his second voyage to the New World in 1493, after Montserrat mountain located in Catalonia. Montserrat is nicknamed the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean, both for its resemblance to coastal Ireland and for the Irish descent of its inhabitants.

RN, Bit of a contrast between the weather and color of the water from the 2 photos to the left. Hence the comparison to Ireland? Like just the same. Best wishes, Dave and Laurie

Deu para visitar algo, ou passou perto??? Parece imperdível, do tipo que eu gosto!!!!

André, infelizmente este foi o ponto mais próximo que chegamos! Não que o vulcão estivesse nervoso (ele sempre está), mas o roteiro era assim mesmo!
