Canouan’s Windward Coast
This wonderful coastal walk takes in fantastic sea views, pretty bays and some of the most peaceful and magical beaches you are likely to find anywhere in the Caribbean.
Duration: Airport to Windward Bay 2 hours.
Details: Follow the road from Canouan’s jetport all the way along the windward coastline to the Raffles Resort and enjoy wonderful scenery and very beautiful beaches and bays. Starting at Friendship Bay with its long stretch of sand and luxury hotel, climb uphill above the village and enjoy panoramic views of Charlestown Bay on the leeward coast and the Tobago Cays off to the south east. At the top of a small peak is an area of parkland and the remains of a cannon battery which is well worth the short diversion.
Continue along the leeward coast past Riley Bay to the pretty white sand beach and volcanic rock formations of Windward Bay. Protected by a long offshore reef, this beach is a lovely place for a picnic and a swim after your hike.
