The terrain of Montserrat will appeal to both beach lovers and adventure travelers, a good mix of rocky coastlines, wildlife, and waterfalls to go along with soft-sand beaches. We wish Montserrat luck in gaining traction, but as with all attempts at tourism, this is a complete "be careful what you wish for" type of strategy, as tourism investments that bring people and money in the short term can result in the extinction of culture in the long run if not implemented carefully (cough, Cancun).
That said, it's inspiring to see the island rebound after going through two devastating natural disasters. For a little more perspective, it's important to understand that after the eruption, the southern part of the island was closed, and nearly half the population left for the mainland.
After reading about that story, one would have to figure that wherever they end up in terms of tourism is better than where they were twenty years ago.
