"Canouan Island - The Diamond of the Grenadines" Canouan by MikeAtSea
Canouan Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 12 photos
In the shape of a half circle, Canouan rises from its sandy beaches to the 240m (787-ft.) high peak of Mount Royal in the north, where you’ll find unspoiled forests of white cedar. Twenty-three kilometers (14 miles) south of St. Vincent and 32km (20 miles) north of Grenada, Canouan has a population of fewer than 1,250 people, many of whom fish for a living and live in Retreat Village, the island’s only village.
Only 6 x 2km (3 3/4 x 1 1/4 miles), Canouan is surrounded by long ribbons of absolutely gorgeous powdery white-sand beaches and blue lagoons. The surrounding coral reefs teem with life, making for great diving and snorkelling.
