Jack Boy Hill Viewing Facility, Montserrat

4.6
#7 of 15 in Things to do in Montserrat
Drive to Jack Boy Hill Viewing Facility for an opportunity to observe the volcano and the scars of a pyroclastic onslaught, a result of previous eruptions. Relax at the picnic benches in this peaceful setting and enjoy a break from the road, taking in the colorful blooming flowers. Use the telescope to pick out the ruined airfield among the ash and dust. Make sure you bring your camera and binoculars and view the oddly contrasting lush greenery and decimated grey expanse that leads to the ocean. Well-looked after restrooms and shade from the sun can be found on-site. Put Jack Boy Hill Viewing Facility and other Montserrat attractions into our Montserrat vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
