Additional Location Information
Montserrat is a Caribbean island that is a British Overseas Territory. It is located in the Leeward Islands, part of the chain of islands known as the Lesser Antilles, in the West Indies. The island of Montserrat measures approximately 16 km (9.9 mi) long and 11 km (6.8 mi) wide, with approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) of coastline. Montserrat is nicknamed The Emerald Isle of the Caribbean both for its resemblance to coastal Ireland and for the Irish ancestry of some of its inhabitants.
The island of Montserrat is located approximately 480 km (300 mi) east-southeast of Puerto Rico and 48 km (30 mi) southwest of Antigua. It comprises 104 km2 (40 sq mi) but is currently gradually increasing in size owing to the buildup of volcanic deposits on the southeast coast. The island is 16 km (9.9 mi) long and 11 km (6.8 mi) wide, with rock cliffs rising 15 to 30 m (50–100 feet) above the sea and a number of smooth bottomed sandy beaches scattered among coves on the western (Caribbean) side of the island.
Montserrat has two islets, Little Redonda and Virgin, and Statue Rock.
Despite the past volcanic activity,(which is now dormant), a large part of Montserrat (the northern part, that includes the Woodlands) has barely been affected, and remains lush and green. In February 2005, The Princess Royal officially opened a new airport at Gerald's in the north (renamed the John A. Osborne Airport); as of|2011, it handles several flights daily operated by Fly Montserrat Airways. Docking facilities are in place at Little Bay, where the new capital town is being constructed; the new government centre is at Brades, a short distance away.
The people of Montserrat were granted full residency rights in the United Kingdom in 1998, and British citizenship was granted in 2002.
Alta Loma is located in the Woodlands neighborhood which has the duel benefit of proximity to Montserrat's serene, green, lush, and tropical landscape, in addition to being a short distance to the new capital town center at Brades, which contains the port, ferry docks, restaurants, snorkeling, diving, banking, and boating opportunities.
Alta Loma and Montserrat offer a wonderful vacation opportunity for travelers looking to experience privacy, both white and black sand beaches, historic and untarnished natural beauty, and eco-toursim.
Come visit and relax in the secret jewel of the Caribbean!
