Hurricanes. Hurricanes simply cannot be predicted. However, the island has NEVER had a direct hit and even during the severe storms of 2004, 2005, and most recently, Hurricane Irma in 2017, we had minimal damage. In the unlikely event of a mandatory evacuation, you may be asked by authorities to leave the island. Keep in mind that the house sits 20 feet above the dune so storm surge is a minimal threat. The Rondavel (a Deltec hurricane-resistant home) has been engineered to withstand 200 knot winds, and has high impact resistant windows.
The water. The ocean waters on LGI are calm, clear, and shallow – perfect for children.
