Guana Island is a privately owned island dedicated as a wildlife sanctuary. It has one of the most abundant array of flora and fauna species in all the Caribbean. This rugged 850 acre island with mountain peaks, rocky coasts, salt ponds and beautiful sand beaches is truly an island paradise. The remains of an old sugar cane plantation owned by American Quakers still exists on the island, just past the salt-water flamingo pond.
The island is lush with coconut, papaya and sea-grape trees. White Bay is Guana’s largest beach and is a popular place for yachts to anchor, though the beach is reserved for guests of the island. The southern tip of the island has one of the most popular snorkeling and diving spots in the BVI, called Monkey Point. The National Park Authority has mooring buoys for boaters to use. Because it is a protected area, the fish are friendly and are comfortable with people so you might see yellowtail snappers and perhaps sea turtles since they nest in the area. The clear blue waters are perfect for experiencing the beauty of our underwater marine life.
AnaCapri Estate has the most wonderful unspoiled view of the island as no structures can be seen. The infinity pool just flows into the landscape of Guana Island. When the Travel Channel featured Guana Island one of the scenes was shot from White Bay Beach admiring the beautiful view (looking right at the land of AnaCapri Estate).
