Little Bay, Montserrat

Little Bay is a town under construction, intended to be the future capital of the Caribbean island of Montserrat. It is adjacent to Brades.


The official capital of Montserrat at Plymouth in the south of the island was abandoned since 1997 after it was buried by the eruption of the Soufriere Hills volcano. Interim government buildings have since been built at Brades, becoming the political capital in 1998. The move was initially intended to be temporary, but it has remained the island's de facto capital ever since.

The project is funded by the Government of Montserrat and the UK Government's Department for International Development.
