Welcome to Canouan

Unless you have a yacht to sleep on, or manage to get a room at the one fine hotel right on the sand by town, Canouan is not the best choice as a base to explore the region. The tiny main town of Charleston lacks the sense of community that you'll find in other neighboring islands. Despite this, the island remains worth a visit for its landscapes and marine environment; you'll find lovely beaches with good snorkeling not too far from the ferry dock.
