Silversea Luxury Cruises À LITTLE BAY (Monserrat)

LITTLE BAY (Monserrat)

As one of the Caribbean’s most dramatic islands, Montserrat has always done thing a little differently. While the rest of its neighbours were busy promoting tourism in its masses, Montserrat was content to sit back and stay in the (metaphorical) shadow. The island remains relatively undeveloped for the archipelago, with off the beaten path beaches, hidden creeks and so much natural beauty that we fully expect this little island to soon become the next go-to eco-tourism destination.

Much of Montserrat’s discretion is because it is governed by seismic activity and has endured more volcanic eruptions than any other Caribbean island. These have earned it the nickname the “Pompeii of the Caribbean”, understandably so, as much of the main city was covered in ash after the 1995 eruption. The cause of this is the mighty Soufriere Hills volcano, dormant since 2010 yet still spewing sulphur and smoke. However, it is not all doom and gloom and Monserrat’s other nickname is “the emerald isle”, is not only because of its lush verdant forests lined with lime trees and palms, but because its coasts bear a certain similarity to Ireland. And yes, Guinness is available! Montserratians are optimistic and fun loving and Little Bay locals are the perfect example. Set at the very tip of the island, the town is intended as the new capital, and is being enhanced with the modernity once would expect of such an honour. Little Bay beach is without doubt one of the most beautiful in Caribbean, and is a tonic for the soul.

Little Bay, Isles Bay Hill, Guided ATV Tour

Depart the pier for the short drive to Isles Bay Hill, the starting point for your scenic and exhilarating ATV adventure. Upon arrival, receive your safety and riding instructions and familiarise yourself with your ATV, then begin your guided ATV tour.


Belham Ghaut, Volcanic Mud Flows, Estate Ruins, Corkhill Road, Corkhill Cricket Grounds

From Isles Bay, your guide leads you down Belham Ghaut, now transformed by volcanic mud flows. From here, pass by uninhabited areas with once-stately homes now ruined by volcanic ash, acid rain and neglect. Your route continues along the abandoned Corkhill Road en route to the once-splendid Corkhill Cricket Grounds.


Geothermal Project, Weekes Road, Richmond Hill, Montserrat Springs Hotel, 'Buried City'

Next, take in our Geothermal Project as you make your way to Weekes Road, then on to Richmond Hill for a brief stop at the ruins of the Montserrat Springs Hotel.

Upon arrival, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.

Buried City and Woodlands Beach

Explore how the historic volcanic activity of Montserrat altered life on the island during this panoramic, half-day 'Buried City' excursion.


Little Bay, Brades, Salem, Runaway Ghaut

Depart the pier for the short drive through Brades and on to Salem. En route, discover the continually changing face of the local villages as we continue to carry out construction in our desire to reclaim our country. Your first stop is Runaway Ghaut. Local lore has it that a sip from the natural spring here ensures your return to Montserrat.


Richmond Hill, Montserrat Springs Hotel, Plymouth, the 'Buried City'.

Next, begin your 'Buried City' tour with a drive to Richmond Hill and a stop at the Montserrat Springs Hotel. Upon arrival, proceed to the hotel's viewing platform for a bird's-eye view of Plymouth, the 'Buried City', and its environs. Leaving the hotel, proceed for a visit to the 'Buried City' itself, where ample photo opportunities await your arrival. Standing on what was once our deep-water harbour, behold what is now the tallest mountain of Montserrat, where our schools, business, homes and churches once stood.

Little Bay, Boat-Ride, Montserrat, Soufriere Hills Volcano, Plymouth City Ruins

Depart the pier for a leisurely boat-ride along the shore, and see the 'Buried City' of Plymouth from a different vantage point. Plymouth was the capital city Montserrat, and, for centuries, the only port of entry to the island. Constructed on historical lava deposits near the then-inactive Soufriere Hills Volcano, the town was evacuated when the volcano resumed erupting in 1995. Plymouth was abandoned permanently in 1997 after it was burnt, and mostly-buried, by a series of pyroclastic flows and lahars, or destructive mudflows, on the slopes of the volcano.


Coastal Villas, St. Patrick's Village Ruins, Huge Deltas, Expanded Beaches

After passing by Plymouth, see luxurious coastal villas en route to the village of St. Patrick's, now nothing more than volcanic rubble. You can ask Captain Buffy to stop and allow you to capture the power of Mother Nature on your camera. View the huge, newly-formed deltas and expanded beaches that the volcano created along the coastline, adding many square miles/kilometres to the island. Your coastal boat-ride concludes back at the pier.

Montserrat Volcano Observatory and Botanical Gardens

In July 1995, Montserrat's Soufrière Hills volcano erupted after being asleep for hundreds of years, burying Plymouth, the island's capital. Over 39 feet of mud and ash devastated the southern part of the island. The area was evacuated, and even now, police permission must be received before anyone can enter the exclusion zone where the volcanic activity occurred. Discover why the Soufriere Hills Volcano makes Montserrat such a unique island during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.

Kayaking, Bat Caves, Fruit Bats

A short kayak-ride along the shoreline takes you to the island's famous bat caves, a unique and fascinating way to experience the fruit bat in its native environment. The bat caves are partially-submerged crevices that house these special flying mammals, which offer a chorus of bat chirps that greet your entrance into the cave. Thousands of fruit bats hang upside down from the walls and ceiling of these fabulous caves; one cave houses the females and their young, and the other cave houses the males. The caves offer the fruit bats a protected environment from the devastating hurricanes, volcanic eruptions and droughts that have impacted the island for the past three decades.
