South of Canouan are the Tobago Cays, numerous islets and coves guarded by some of the most spectacular coral reefs in the world. Visitors can sail, snorkel and sunbathe in complete seclusion. The only way to get here is by boat.
East of the Cays is Mayreau, one of the smaller Grenadines, which is a privately owned island with few residents. Salt Whistle Bay Resort, the only hotel, welcomes guests and can be reached by boat from Union Island.
