Lovango has been inhabited, farmed and grazed for many years. When the United States bought the then Danish West Indies, there was a public school on the island.
The island was once a popular stopping over point for fisherman coming from Jost Van Dyke and is now the site of several homes.
The island serves as a roosting location for seabirds.
There is a popular but doubtful rumor concerning how Lovango Cay got its name. According to the story, there was once a brothel on the island and sailors would “love and go.” Actually Lovango and the adjacent islands, Mingo, to the east and Congo to the north were named after sections of Africa from which slaves were brought to the islands.
