Lovely Mustique. We’ll definitely come back one day!
“There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life.
There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine.
O traveler, if you are in search of That
Don’t look outside, look inside yourself and seek That.
This aloneness is worth more than a thousand lives.
This freedom is worth more than all the lands on earth.
To be one with the truth for just a moment,
Is worth more than the world and life itself.”
We’ll definitely come back one day……On Victoria
Mustique Island is owned by the Mustique Company, which in turn is owned by the island’s home owners. The island has approximately 100 private villas, many of which are rented out. In addition there is one hotel called the Cotton House and one privately owned four-bedroom hotel called Firefly.
Today Mustique retains its natural beauty and tranquility, protecting the environment and offering guests one of the most secure and pristine islands in the world. Mustique is a picturesque and secluded island surrounded by nine beaches of pure white sand, with gently swaying coconut palms and warm turquoise waters.
Macaroni Beach is perhaps the most famous of Mustique’s beaches and is situated on the east coast of the island. Other popular beaches on the Atlantic or Caribbean are Endeavour, Lagoon, L’Ansecoy and Simplicity,several of which have picnic hut facilities.
Mustique was purchased in 1958 by Colin Tennant, 3rd Baron Glenconner, under whose guidance the island began to be developed. Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, the sister of Queen Elizabeth II, accepted his gift of a 10-acre plot of land as a wedding present in 1960, and she built a residence called Les Jolies Eaux. In 1979 Mustique Island was transformed from a family estate into a private limited company with the homeowners as shareholders.
