When to Visit

Montserrat enjoys a tropical climate, making it a good year-round destination. However, to maximise your experience, visit during the dryer months of February to April when the island is less crowded, and you can enjoy outdoor activities under clear, sunny skies.

Bear in mind, the island's hurricane season runs from June to November. Although it's a low season with fewer tourists, unexpected showers might restrict outdoor explorations. The choice of when to visit will largely depend on your preferred holiday activities and considerations for the weather.
