isle of Mustiques' 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.
1,400 acres Mustique has several coral reefs at its 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 sugar cane but this was
eventually abandoned in the 19th century when sugar was sourced from
European-grown sugar beet. Remains of the sugar cane industry such as
the 'Cotton House' and sugar mill at Endeavour are the last physical
traces of the islands historical past.
Horse Riding on Mustique
The Equestrian Centre on Mustique offers the unique opportunity to
ride along this unspoilt coastline and lush island landscape at only
100 USD per hour. The centre is open from Monday to Friday and rides
are scheduled at 9.30am and 3.30pm.
The Mustique climate is considered perfect by many with almost constant sunshine and tropical breezes to help cool you down. The sun is strong so caution is advised when sunbathing, there is low humidity with most of the rainfall between September and October. The temperature does not much vary from a constant 80F.
