Sombrero Lighthouse

Due to it's distance from Anguilla, on a secluded island, Sombrero Lighthouse is rarely visited. The island was once mined for it's phosphate supply, in the 1800s and now has been left to the birds. The light house, now automatic, previously had manual operators ensuring the land mass boats was safely lit.


The Anguilla National Trust offers tours to Sombrero Island. An important nesting ground for several native birds, you are sure to have natural sights in addition to the light house. A guide, binoculars and refreshments are provided.
