Relaxing on the beach in Canouan

Pulled from virtual obscurity in the 1990’s by the building of two major resorts on the island, Canouan now offers those visiting by crewed yacht charter on a yacht charter itinerary of the Caribbean Windward Islands a taste of luxury resort options juxtaposed against the relative wildness of the undeveloped Caribbean of years past. Canouan is a tiny island, and is part of the island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Located just 25 miles south of St. Vincent on a crewed yacht charter itinerary, Canouan is an easy island to visit. Partially surrounded by a coral reef on the Atlantic side of the island, Canouan offers protected anchorages and long expanses of protected pristine sandy white beaches for the visiting guests on a crewed yacht charter cruise of the Caribbean Windward Islands

Originally built as a Raffles Resort, the Carenage Bay Resort and the Tamarind Hotel and Yacht Club anchor the island for resort hotels. The five star Carenage Bay Resort located on 300 acres features three private beaches, a large fresh water swimming pool, a spa and fitness center, a world class golf course and a Trump Club Privee Casino. The smaller Italian run Tamarind Resort features 40 hideaway rooms and suites, several restaurants, and a massage room. Both welcome visiting yachtsmen to make use of various aspects of the two resorts.

Canouan Scuba Diving

With the one mile reef along the Atlantic side of Canouan, great snorkeling and scuba diving are available. There are also miles of protected white sandy beaches to enjoy. And with Carenage Bay Resort, world class golfing is available or perhaps reserve a relaxing spa treatment. Canouan, a tiny island of only 3 square miles offers both natural Caribbean beauty on land and underwater, and on land luxury activities for those so inclined while on a yacht charter of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
