Soufriere Hills Volcano from Garibaldi Hill by Patrick Bennett

Garibaldi Hill View of Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat

Soufriere Hills Volcano dominates the southern third of tiny Montserrat island. For miles around the persistently active volcano stretches a desolate expanse designated as The Exclusion Zone. This is the Caribbean’s ultimate “no man’s land.” A wild, uninhabited, and strictly off-limits area with a history of pyroclastic flows and general Hellish destruction. When viewed from the safe distance of Garibaldi Hill, though, the volcano sheds its bestial persona in favor of something much more serene. Awe-inspiring. It’s a view well worth scaling Garibaldi’s 840 feet in elevation to experience.

This incredible view from high atop Garibaldi Hill, though, is but one of MANY on offer in magical Montserrat. For more on all that you can expect to experience here, be sure to check out our Island of Montserrat Travel Guide. In it, we include tons of insight gleaned from our recent adventures in and around the volcano paradise that is Montserrat.
