Sightseeing:

Small bays and coves, most with long sweeping white sand beaches, surround Canouan Island. They are pristine and a few are a challenge to access. The island is partially surrounded by the coral reef on the Atlantic side, which adds protection to many of the beaches. Endless expanses of fine sand, its gleaming white in dramatic contrast to the strong colors of the luxuriant vegetation and tropical sea await those who seek a solitary encounter with nature.

Halfway down the Grenadines chain, this tiny boot-shape island—3½ miles (5½ km) long and 1¼ miles (2 km) wide—has only about 1,200 residents.

Tours Excursions Transportation:

The narrow, winding streets of the old town fan out from the port, leading you to sunny, palm-lined plazas. Visit the Catedral Nueva (New Cathedral), begun in the early 1800s but not completed for 116 years. Its dramatic, golden dome rises over a striking interior.
