Montserrat, a lush green and mountainous island of approximately 39 square miles, lies in the Eastern Caribbean chain of islands, some 27 miles southwest of Antigua. Known fondly as the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean, this pear shaped island - 12 miles long and 7 miles wide (and now expanding, due to the volcanic activity in the south of the island!) - is situated 1,150 miles north of the equator. It can be located on the map at approximately 16 45' North and 62 10' West. The island rises in a series of dramatic mountain slopes to the high point of over 3,000 feet at the Soufriere Hills in the Exclusion Zone. The islands of Redonda, Nevis and St. Kitts in the west and north respectively, Guadeloupe to the south and Antigua to the northeast can be seen from the various points on the island.
