Welcome to
Hogg Island

The battle between ‘Hogg’ and ‘Hog’ is constant when you ask locals about the original name of the largest island on the Essequibo. Some attribute it to hundreds of wild hogs that once occupied it. Another explanation points to it being named after Quintin Hogg, an Englishman who helped to modernise sugar production. Regardless, the island is a beautiful one with one main hook – the Hogg Island Windmill. The 36-foot Dutch structure was built with clay bricks on what used to be Plantation Luyksberg.
