Montserrat Travel Information


Montserrat Flag Montserat is a British Overseas Territory located in the Caribbean Sea, part of the Leeward Islands. The island is sometimes called the "Emerald Isle of the Caribbean" both because many of its inhabitants are of Irish descent, and because the island is said to resemble coastal Ireland.

In 1995, the previously dormant Soufriere Hills volcano erupted. The volcano destroyed the capital, Plymouth, and caused about two thirds of the island's population to flee abroad. Even today the eruption is continuing, albeit on a much reduced scale, and as result an exclusion zone covers much of the islands, and visitors are not allowed to enter Plymouth. At the moment, the village of Brades (which is also known as "Brades Estate") is serving as the defacto capital, and a new town, Little Bay is being constructed on the North island, out of reach of the volcano.

As of the 2006, the estimated population was 4,655. The defacto capital since 1998, Brades has a population of about 1,000.

Product Description:
Beatrice Latimer moved to the island of Montserrat in the Caribbean with her two teen daughters in 1967 when her husband took a job managing construction there. Here she tells the island's story through the doings of the people of the small community of Bethel. In 1995 the towering Soufriere Hills volcano on this carefree little island paradise in the Caribbean, erupted violently spewing volcanic ash and mud over the lower half of the island. Over the next five years, it buried the capital city of Plymouth, the only airport and numerous small villages, including one named Bethel. It changed everything! Two thirds of the population, some 11,000 people, were forced to flee mainly to the United Kingdom. In Beewee Montserrat, the author describes this enchanting island and its people the way they were in the late 1960’s. It is a folksy account that records her keen observations and insightful commentaries about the community of Bethel and the islanders who befriended her and her family during their stay. The village and house where the Latimers lived no longer exist. This book, including 25 photographs taken by the author’s husband, is a charming record of a place and way of life that are gone forever.
