Far better experience than Sugar beach, however we did not snorkel at Sugar beach. If you are trying to go out for a day then make it here at Anse Chastanet. You have a lot of laying out space and plenty of room to snorkel....More

What a great place to have a vacation. The food is truly gourmet. The view from our room was amazing. I would have like it more if we had a room with AC.

We stopped by to check out the black sand beach. It was pretty, but nothing too exciting. There are many boats in the area dropping off snorkelers and then just hung out in the water. So it seems a bit crowded. We chose not to...More

Best to have your own (4WD) transport to go there cause the access road is pretty bad (although every vehicle will be able to go). The beach itself seems to be owned by a resort but is accessable for everyone. The beach itself consists of...More

It is about an hour and a half drive - not very far but slow because it is mountainous. The beach is at a very fancy resort and anyone can swim there and enjoy the fabulous accessible coral. You can take a boat there from... More
