Guiana Island (or Guana Island) is an island off the northeast coast of Antigua, between the Parham Peninsula and Crump Island. It forms the southern coast of the North Sound, and is the fourth largest island of Antigua and Barbuda.

Flora and Fauna[edit]

Island is a refuge for the Fallow Deer, Antigua's national animal.[1]

History and development[edit]

The island is owned by Allen Stanford, who has been convicted of fraud in the United States. The Antiguan government has been able to secure a multimillion-dollar investment in the Guiana Island project from Chinese developers.[1][2]
