The Isle of Mustique's' constant warm climate and unspoilt landscape makes it unique and extremely desirable. The roads are unpaved, there are few of them, 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 and as a result has become one of the worlds great escapes. English is the most common language spoken but due to the international scope of the islands guests French,Italian, German and Dutch are often spoken.
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.
