We came here twice during our stay in Soufriere. Part of the beach is public and the other part is associated with Jade Mountain. We rented 2 chairs and a straw hut for $33USD for the day. The beach was nice, water was clear. My children and husband rented snorkeling gear to explore the reef. They saw lots of cool... More

Beautiful beach and great snorkeling right off the shore. However, the day we went, the water was infested with the tiny creatures which are the larvae of the jelly fish. I couldn't see them, but I felt their bites while snorkeling in the water. Didn't think much of it at the time, and never heard of the sea lice or... More

MUST VISIT. Just a breathtaking reef, easily accessible for beginners. The road to reach is a bit hairy. Lots of hills with moderate to extreme grades to deal with. Recommend a mid-size SUV or at least a car with decent power for the hills. Make sure you grab a drink at the beach side bar. There are certainly worse way... More

We got a tour with Captain Bob taxi service off the ship. We went to this beach first which was a disaster. You swim with the boats and the fumes from them. The restaurant was extremely expensive but food not bad. The views were great but like I said you had these big engine boats right where you sit and... More

We visited from another part of the island only for the day. This place is absolutely beautiful and if I couldn't afford to stay here I would never leave. The snorkeling and swimming here is beautiful. The beach is public but not crowded. You can pay for a chair and umbrella and rent snorkel gear.

Beautiful beach free for visitors to access and enjoy. Incredible snorkelling extremely close (literally centimetres) from the shore. Large lockers to rent for pretty cheap ($6ECD each) to store possessions. Snorkelling/diving equipment is available but obviously bring your own if you want to avoid paying rental fee. Road from Soufriere is tricky to navigate by car and on foot (we... More

The beach is a bit off the main road and probably easiest to access by water taxi from Soufriere. There is a snorkling area on the left hand side of the beach which starts only a couple meters from the beach. As a visitor you need to bring your own equipment as they only rent to hotel guests. There is... More

The beach doesn't seem like much when you walk up to it. Then you get settled in and go in the water and realize how beautiful and unique this place is. The water is so clear its unbelievable. I absolutely loved this beach. There is also a highly priced beach bar there with great drinks and wonderful food. Definitely worth... More

Great place to visit. If you are up to a bit of a long, but cheap journey do what we did. We staayed in Rodney Bay and so took a couple of buses (first to Castries and the second to Soufrere) and a water taxi to Anse Chastanet and it was lovely. Great snorkeling. Much cheaper than going by taxi... More
