The Isle of Mustique is privately owned and it's constant warm climate and unspoilt landscape makes it unique and extremely desirable. Discreetly maintained by The Mustique Company a maximum of 100 residential properties may exist although there are currently only around 70 in existence. Of the few roads on the island, little signage exists and all the telephone and power cables are underground. In essence Mustique has been developed in reverse, the properties are sophisticated whilst the landscape is unspoilt and serene.
Covering 1,400 acres Mustique has several coral reefs at it's waters edge and plays host to a variety of beautiful wildlife such as herons, tortoises, iguanas and a wide variety of tropical birds. The year round population of around 500 live mostly in the villages of Lovell, Britannia Bay and Dover. General history of the island dates back to the 15th century when Spanish sailors named the island 'Los Pajaros' or The Birds' as the islands resembled a flock of birds settling on the ocean. Originally the islands main export was Sugarcane but this was eventually abandoned in the 19th century when sugar was sourced from European-grown sugar beet. Remains of the Sugarcane industry such as the 'Cotton House' and sugar mill at Endeavour are the last physical traces of the islands historic past.
