Little Pool At Little Bay, Montserrat

Little Pool At Little Bay, Montserrat

No community can thrive without first looking out for its youth. Similarly, Caribbean destinations have a hard time succeeding without offering safe venues to swim. Both notions come together beautifully in Montserrat along the shores of Little Bay. There, beneath a cluster of beach bars, souvenir shops, and the island’s lone dive operator you’ll find the little pool at Little Bay. That’s not an official name, of course. Everyone I asked couldn’t provide me with one. To me, though, the name truly fits as the tidy arc of rocks and cement tetrapods forms a cozy swimming spot ideal for inexperienced swimmers, who quite often are also small. Strong swells are fairly frequent here, so the pool really does come in handy. The mostly man-made structure was installed just a few years ago. Even so, the little pool at Little Bay already attracts scores of fish, much to the delight of novice snorkelers.
