BRADES, Montserrat--“Rethinking Montserrat’s Tourism” is the theme for Montserrat’s celebration of Tourism Week. which began Sunday, September 25 and runs to Saturday, October 1, according to a press release from the Montserrat Tourism Division.

The week-long celebration coincides with World Tourism Day on Tuesday, September 27, and the Montserrat Tourism Division has organised activities to educate the public about the island’s tourism product.
Rosetta West-Gerald, Director of the Montserrat Tourism Division said the week includes more than 10 events and experiences for residents to enjoy and learn more about the island. A church service kicked off the week at Shiloh Pentecostal Church in Salem. Tourism stakeholders were invited to attend the church service. A Walking Tour was carded for later that day.
“Everyone can be an ambassador for Montserrat. During this week, you can go snorkelling, hiking, bird or turtle watching if you have never tried these activities before. We believe that the more we all know about what is in our environment and how special it is, the more we will care for it and encourage others to come and visit. Our environment is a crucial partner in Montserrat’s tourism offering,” West-Gerald stated.
A Tourism Open Day will be held at the Montserrat National Trust today, Monday, September 26. The day will begin with a discussion led by tourism stakeholders on “Rethinking Montserrat’s Tourism”.
