The island is still vulnerable to hurricanes during the season from June to November.

Volcanic eruptions still pose some danger, though volcanic activity has been primarily on the level of a nuisance in recent years. Travel to the Exclusion Zone on the south end of the island is generally not permitted, for safety reasons. The Montserrat Volcano Observatory publishes current risk assessments and exclusion zone limits.

Montserrat is generally a safe place. However in recent years, violent crime has increased. Assault is the most common form, with an annual rate of just over 10 assaults for every 1000 people. This is still considered low by world standards. By comparison, Canada's rate is about 7 per 1000. General safety precautions, including such as not walking in an alleyway at night, are advised.

No vaccinations are required to enter Montserrat unless coming from a country that has suffered a cholera, yellow fever, or small pox epidemic.

The people of Montserrat all speak English, albeit with a charming Caribbean sounding local accent. One may also hear Montserrat Dialect , a form of broken English spoken by most locals.
