I'm not normally a beach-goer, but had a few hours to kill before my transfer to the airport from my resort in Soufriere and they laid on a free shuttle to the beach, so I thought why not. And I was glad I came. Although the area available to non-hotel guests is small, I spent a lovely three hours here.... More

Best shore dive ever. And a great lunch between the dives. The resort extremely nice - not to mention Jade Mountain resort sister property. Scuba St Lucia was a top notch dive shop.

All I can say is it was a world class beach and a pretty darn good shore dive on the reef and also excellent for snorkeling. The services for diving were excellent. I did not stay at the resort, way out of my budget, but it also appeared world class. You won't be disappointed.

Don’t let people put you off the drive to this beach. Yes it is bumpy, yes it is only one car wide, yes it is step in places but it is completely fine to drive. It takes about 15 mins and we managed it without a 4 by 4 with no problems at all. The views from the road are... More

After climbing Petit Piton, my son and I stopped by Anse Chastanet Beach to grab a drink and enjoy a cool-down snorkel. The open air bar was great for a quick drink. Afterwards, we dropped our belongings on the beach and headed out for a snorkel. Given the security entering into the resort compound, we had little concern leaving our... More

We went here on the first day of our vacation having heard the snorkeling is the best St Lucia can offer from shore. Unfortunately we were surrounded by "non-stinging" jellies immediately. That is just a bit creepy for some of us, but then some of us started getting stung by other stuff - maybe broken up jellies - so our... More

We were in St Lucia on a cruise in February 2015. We've been to the island a number of times and wanted to try something new. Anse Chastanet came highly reviewed and I can see why. It was awesome!

Anse Chastanet beach is located near the town of Soufriere. There is a resort (Jade Mountain) that uses this beach, but since every beach in St Lucia is public anyone can enjoy it. Me and my husband stayed at the Fond Doux Plantation and visited Anse Chastanet a total of 3 times during our stay in St Lucia. The beach... More

Anse Chasternet is home to two quite exclusive resorts but is accessible to anyone. Access is from a steep concreted road at the Northern end of Soufriere Bay ... a 2 mile trek that you just have to trust goes to the resort. Just watch out for staff minibuses coming the other way. Or alternatively take a water taxi from... More

We dove here 2 different days with Dive Saint Lucia. The dive site was beautiful. Lots of things going on, beautiful reef and steep walls. The colors are pretty muted, but that is common to the island. It can't compare to other reefs like Cozumel. However, if you are looking for a fun, relaxing dive with sea horses, puffers, trumpets,... More
