GUANA  ISLAND
BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

Island or region

Guana Island - British Virgin Islands.

 

Location

Guana is a lush 850 acre private island, the 7th largest island in the British Virgin Islands. It is located north of Tortola, just a short boat ride from Tortola's airport on Beef Island. Guana Island is named after a large iguana-shape rock on its western shore.

Rooms

The interiors are comfortably but not overwhelmingly furnished in a style that comes out of the history of Guana Island, which was once a sugar cane plantation owned by American Quakers. They favored native stone architecture and managed very nicely without media rooms and discos. Guests stay in secluded cottage rooms, each with a private terrace overlooking the sea.

Dining & Entertainments

After cocktails, guests may opt to dine privately or to join others at friendly social dining tables. Dinner -- the freshest seafood, Island-grown fruits and vegetables, breads and muffins from our own oven -- all served on china and crystal by a staff as cheerful as candlelight. And then comes the rest of the star-filled night.

Sports & Leisure

A day on Guana Island can be filled with a variety of activities for those who relish the outdoors. Guana Island has equipment for snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, fishing and sailing. There are also tennis courts for those who love to play. For an additional charge, the island managers can arrange water skiing, fishing trips, sunset cruises, castaway picnics, massage, tennis pro, scuba diving and instruction, deep sea fishing, sail or motor boat charters, and boat trips to other islands. Several of the 7 beaches around the island offer good snorkeling, right off the beach.

Additional features

Guana Island is a hiking paradise of over 850 acres of nature and hiking trails. Many of the trails are easy, but some involve climbing one of the mountains on the island and can be difficult. Since the island is a nature and wildlife preserve, it has the richest fauna of any island its size anywhere in the West Indies.
