If you aren’t taking the hiking trails towards Rendezvous Bay Beach, you should know that it can only be accessed via boat. It’s the only white sand beach in Montserrat and well worth the effort for those who enjoy a bit of seclusion with a majestic swim.

Stay at Cythera.

In Greek mythology, Cythera was where the gods went to vacation, hence the inspiration for the name of this villa. Cythera is located on a cliff, and as a guest, you have no shortage of peaceful amenities. Entertain your traveling companions, rest comfortably, or enjoy swimming in the outdoor pool while watching the birds that are native to the region.

Eat at Ponts Beach View.

In Little Bay, Pont’s Beach View Restuarant sits alongside the water while serving up authentic and local cuisine. It’s the perfect place to dine and lime with its natural surroundings that are just as impressive as the food. Far from your typical restaurant setting, you can hear the birds singing as you eat in the company of lush, tropical plants and take in the views of the sea.
