Canouan

Island of the Grenadines

Canouan is just five square miles in size and formerly a community of sailors and fishermen. The now expanding local populous still includes fishermen, proud of their community heritage as boat builders and harvesters of the sea.

Laughter prevails as a vital ingredient of this community, and the sounds of happy children and elders create a feeling of traveling into an easier place and time. Canouan manages to retain a distinct quality inherited from another time in history, another age.

Here there is no lack of opportunity for sport. You have a choice between sailing, scuba diving, wind-surfing or volley-ball; or excursions on foot, boat or by small plane.
