Travel Vaccinations for Montserrat

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to Montserrat

Although Montserrat is known for the activity of its Soufrière Hills volcano, there is so much else on this Emerald isle of the Caribbean that makes it stand out. Nature lovers drawn by the raw fury of the volcano take hiking tours up to the Funicular de Sant Joan to catch the breathtaking view above the monastery, and trek up to Runaway Ghaut to drink from the natural spring. Montserrat is famous for the quality of its diving, and divers marvel at the pristine condition of its reefs.

Don’t miss seeing Little Bay, which is being developed as the new capital and port city. Before you start packing, your first stop on your way to Montserrat should be a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, four to eight weeks before departure so that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for travel to Montserrat.

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again.

Further Travel Health Advice for Montserrat

Montserrat is subtropical, with cooling breezes from the trade winds. When visiting one of the island’s black sandy beaches, protect yourself with sunblock, and make a habit of carrying bottled water with you wherever you go, to stay hydrated. Wear lightweight clothing with long sleeves when hiking through heavily forested areas, to guard against insect bites.

The drinking water on Montserrat is considered safe, but if you choose to drink bottled water, remember to drink lots of it when touring, hiking, or lounging on the beach.

Simplicity and sophistication both describe the way food is cooked and served in Montserrat. Try the National dish, called Goat Water, which is actually the local version of Irish stew. Delicacies such as lobster burgers and coconut scallops are served in restaurants and small cafes, along with such simple dishes as pasta, fried fish and salads, using local produce and herbs. Fruits of all kinds are plentiful in Montserrat and you can choose fresh juices made from papaya, cashew, tamarind, or guava, to name just a few. Don’t leave Montserrat without sampling one of their famous rum punch drinks.

If you need health care in Montserrat, there is a good general hospital where you can obtain care at no charge with proof of U.K. residency. In general the standard of care is quite good. Arrange in advance to have plenty of money with you to pay for any health care you might need, just in case.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities.

Aside from observing the normal precautions, such as not carrying large sums of money, visitors are safe in Montserrat, and the crime rate is very low. When planning a tour in the southern regions of the island, be sure to check in advance for any updates in the Maritime exclusion zones, which change regularly according to volcanic activity.
