About these ratings

Travelers are almost always impressed by tiny Canouan, which measures a mere three and a half miles long and a quarter-mile wide. World-class spas, luxurious resorts, and breathtaking coral reefs are just some of this isolated island's draws. Though recent visitors do concede Canouan isn't the most accessible island of the Grenadines' chain, travelers say its unforgettable ambiance and scenery merits the long trek to get there. "This island is a little out of the way, but well worth the effort […] as soon as you land in the airport, you know you are someplace special," claims one TripAdvisor user.

Grand Bay Beach and South Glossy Bay Beach boast particularly lovely (and free) white-sand beaches with calm swimming waters. Prefer to step off the sands and on to the greens? Then head to the Carenage Bay Beach & Golf Club located on the island's eastcoast to hit the championship links said to be a favorite of Bill Gates. Would you rather take the plunge below sea level? Venture to the Canouan Scuba Center on the leeward side of the island at the Tamarind Beach Hotel to arrange a diving expedition near the Tobago Cays or Mayreau. (Prices vary depending on time of day and the excursion you choose.) If you have the time (and the energy), climb to the top of Mount Royal; from this lookout on the north end of Canouan, you'll find unspoiled views of neighboring St. Lucia.
