Canouan is an island in the Grenadines which belongs to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. It is considered the billionaires getaway mostly because of its sheer exclusivity and that there are no direct commercial flights onto the island. Therefore, it’s only wealthy visitors who can fly directly on a private jet to Canouan. With IYC Cruises, you get to experience an exclusive destination like this island that most will never see.
If you are wondering how to say he name of this fabulous billionaire’s island – it is pronounced “can – ah – wan”.
It’s easy to understand Canouan’s appeal to billionaires and the wealthy. The island’s natural assets and beauty is at the top of the list of the best in the Caribbean. Though the island is small, you will see golf carts scooting around with gleeful guests who relish privacy especially if they are a celebrity. It’s a close and short boat ride over to the Tobago Cays where you can see the various wildlife at play in the marine park preserve. You can view hummingbirds and other gorgeous birds flying about amongst beautiful nature.
