a few questions about visiting canouan

hi everyone,

great forum! had a couple quick questions:

. does AA still offer a direct flight between sju and ciw? i checked online and called their 1-800 number, and got varying answers depending on the rep i spoke with. online, all the flights require connections thru st lucia. anyone know for sure?

. how is the snorkelling at tamarind beach if we stay there? is it difficult to go around and explore the other beaches and reefs on the island by yourself? or does it require taxi/boat access?

. what is the electricity standard?

thanks in advance for your help!

at the moment the AA flight from SJU does stop in St lucia briefly (about 10 minutes or so) and then onto us. Apparantly from July it will be truly direct from SJU.

snorkelling varies from day to day, in general very nice. You can swim out to the "steps" volcanic area and see some beautiful sights on the outer edges of the main Grand Bay.

Other beaches is no problem, all you need is to hop in a local bus, arrange a price of a couple of dollars EC and ask them to take you either to Twin Bay, Friendship Bay and Glossy Bay down at CBH. All will be nice for snorkelling and are deserted beaches.

you can also walk from Tamarind Beach all the way along the bay to the other end - Bachelors point - and snorkel around there too. No need for the bus, just walk over, takes about 30 minutes along the beach.

Electricity - no problems at all. Tamarind and Raffles both have generators if the village power cuts out but that last happened last year sometime in Novemeber I think for only a couple of hours.
