The prestigious Mandarin Oriental Canouan makes up most of the north-east part of the island, where you will also find the beautifully landscaped Jim Fazio golf course. Beyond the gates of the resort, you will also find a number of ultra-luxe villas, all boasting breathtaking views of the sea from luscious garden surroundings.
Canouan is made for lazy days spent lounging on the sands or kicking back on a catamaran or yacht. From here, you can head out for a day at beautiful Tobago Cays, which was picked as the background for Pirates of the Caribbean, and spot the turtles as you snorkel the serene shallows. You may also wish to visit Shell Beach; named for the shells that line its shores, spend an afternoon paddle boarding before relaxing with a spa treatment. You could even board a speed boat to the nearby island of Mustique and enjoy a drink at the renowned Basil’s Bar before returning for the evening.
