Known as “the virgin island that still is,” Guana is one of the last remaining privately-owned islands left in the Caribbean. And this island certainly is private. There are no more than 32 guests on the island at any give time, giving each guest more than enough space to stretch out in this 850-acre island. Some of Guana’s seven white-sand beaches are only accessible by boat, and you can order a private picnic to take along with you.

Boating, fishing, sailing and snorkeling abound – but of course lounging on the beach all day is perfectly acceptable. Guana also has a population of wildlife that includes brightly coloured tortoises, flamingoes and iguanas. And if you desire, you can rent the entire island for an intimate holiday or wedding with 36 of your closest family and friends.
