Canouan, with a size of 5-square miles, is a true hidden gem in the Grenadines in the southern Caribbean. Secret to most travelers, Canouan’s serene pace, pristine beaches, friendly locals, exceptional diving and challenging golf are yours to discover. We love that Grenadians say they “welcome you as a guest and say goodbye as friends.” What a marvelous place for your next Time & Place luxury vacation!
This island is the perfect spot for relaxation and getting away from it all, either on a romantic escape or a memorable family gathering. But don’t just take our word for it: Canouan Island was recently ranked as the number 2 best island off the beaten track by jetsetter.com.
One of the Caribbean’s largest coral reefs runs along the Atlantic side of the island, creating a diving and snorkeling paradise. Other highlights include an 18-hole golf course along the ocean’s edge, boat excursions to neighboring islands and the Tobago Cays, and secluded beaches and turquoise waters for pure relaxation and enjoyment. With its lush vegetation and spectacular views, leaving may be the hardest thing to do.
