Silversea Luxury Cruises A Canouan I.

Canouan is a quiet, peaceful, crescent-shaped island located 25 miles south of St. Vincent. The island is only 3.5 miles by 1.5 miles in size and has a population of fewer than 1,000 people, many of whom fish for a living. Canouan’s main settlement, Charlestown, is situated on one of the biggest beaches on the island’s west coast at Grand Bay. In the north, which is dominated by the nearly 900-foot Mount Royal, Mahault Bay offers a lovely expanse of beach. View more
