AS FAR AS WE KNOW, WE'RE THE ONLY WILDLIFE SANCTUARY IN THE WORLD WITH A COCKTAIL HOUR.

Scientists say that Guana has “more flora and fauna than any island of its size yet studied in the Caribbean and possibly the world.” This formidable reputation is one we strive to keep by protecting Guana’snatural environment and preserving it for future generations.

Our restoration program has brought extirpated species back to Guana and other Virgin Islands. The stout rock iguana had survived only on Anegada but now flourishes on Guana and lives on other islands as well. Other harmless plant and animal species we restored and protect include the red-legged tortoise, the bridled quail dove, the Caribbean roseate flamingo, the white crowned pigeon, Eggers' mallow tree, the Virgin Islands euphorb, Hohenberg's ground bromeliad, and a unique bromeliad found nowhere else on earth.

Guests who care about nature find much to see and enjoy. But even those whose interests lie elsewhere are captivated by the special sights, sounds and fragrances that make Guana so extraordinary. Some, of course, prefer to observe it all from a distance on a chaise, with a Piña Colada as a study aid. Like everything else on the Island, how you make use of the natural wonders is entirely up to you.
