Montserrat is an Island in the Lesser Antilles. The Island is currently recovering from some natural disasters that hit hard in the eighties and nineties. In 1995 the Soufriere Hills volcano erupted and the capital of Plymouth was completely covered in ash and mud.

The southern part of the Island where the volcanic disaster happened is now called the Exclusion Zone. It is possible to visit the Zone with a guide. The Northern part of the island that was spared during the disaster shows how the island used to be. It has lush green mountains and great beaches.
