Development has found nearby Canouan, which now has decent air connections to the rest of the Caribbean and North America. The five-star Raffles Canouan Resort blends nicely into the island setting. The island is complete with a golf resort, shops, yacht club, and restaurants. For me personally, I could hang out all day long in the outer islands, wearing the same swim suit almost every day and not caring if I have a pair of shoes on board. However, I've learned that when cruising with guests, it's a nice respite during a trip to get off the boat and enjoy resort living. Canouan offers just that break. And to be honest, I now enjoy these breaks as well.
