Sombrero Lighthouse

Sombrero Lighthouse
Sombrero, also known as Hat Island, is the northernmost island of the Lesser Antilles in position 18° 60'N, 63° 40'W. It lies 34 miles (55 km) north west of Anguilla across the Dog and Prickly Pear Passage. The distance to Dog Island, the closest island of Anguilla, is 24 miles (39 km). Sombrero is 0.9 miles (1.4 km) long north-south, and 0.25 miles (0.40 km) wide.
The land area is 95 acres (380,000 m2). Originally, when viewed from the sea, the island had the shape of a sombrero hat but mining operations have left the island with precipitous sides and a relatively flat top which is 40 feet (12 m) above sea level. The surface of the island is rough, and vegetation is sparse.

This mining operation yielded some 3000 tons of phosphate a year by 1870. By 1890, the phosphate reserves had been exhausted.

The lighthouse marks the Anegada Passage, which is the route from Europe into the Caribbean. The first lighthouse was erected in 1868. In 1960, Hurricane Donna damaged this lighthouse, with the result that a new lighthouse replaced it in 1962. The lighthouses were manned from 1868 to 2001. In that year, Trinity House donated and installed the current, automated tower, which is a 50' round tower, painted white. The Government of Anguilla's Department of Fisheries and Marine Resources is responsible for the maintenance of the navigational aids.
