Diving and Hiking in Montserrat

Montserrat is back and thriving! If your looking for a 'new' safe, unspoiled caribbean island here it is! Very simple uncommon pleasures to be found. I spent a week hiking, diving and relaxing inbetween. Most affordable 'untouristy' caribbean island I've found. Old world charm and hospitality at the Vue Pointe Hotel and most impressive inhouse Diving operation, Seawolf Diving School. Pristine dive sites, vivid corals, huge barrell sponges, turtles aplenty, flying Gurnards...also amazing to see reef flourishing back to life after volcanic effects..although most was untouched. The Montserrat Volcano Observatory does talks and tours with experts on hand to explain all aspects.
From the volcano to the sea to seasonal foods I found this to be the closest true 'Eco-Tourism' experience. I want to spread the word..but not too far!
