Stayed the week in a villa about 30 minute walk, but drove down given the hills leading to and from Anse Chastanet. Advice to walk the extra over to Mamin was great advice. The beach and water entry points just a little nicer, more mellow- and then the grill and bar. Those really are the best burgers on the island, as everyone said. Never rented chairs or the shaded tables/lounge chairs, pretty expensive and we found shade under the trees or behind the one big rock formation. Amazing snorkel just out from the rock formation at the far end, Go along the drop off- from 20' to 60' or so and the fish are amazing. Only turtle siting was under the pier at the other end between Mamin and Chastenet. Oh, the roti on the menu only at the Chastenet restaurant are great!

Staying at La Haut Hotel. The Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin were 5 mins away.

Worth a visit but be warned the approach road to the 5* hotels is awful. We had a 4x4 so it was alright, but still very bumpy.

Getting to the beach is very easy. Drive to the hotel car park, leave the car there. When you reach Anse Chastanet beach look to your right and there are some steps leading to a shingle footpath which takes you to Anse Mamin.

Very quiet beach with natural shade from the palm trees. There is also a bar/restaurant which is open to non-residents, although you are only allowed to sit at a designated table.

Lovely little black sand beach. We stayed at anse chastanet and enjoyed the walk over to anse mamin. The burgers are seriously delicious. There is a jungle biking centre and hiking paths.
The MUST DO activity is the 1:45pm (approx) tour with Meno of the old sugar plantation ruins. A hugely important historic site to be aware of and learn about. People were taken from west Africa and were purchased as slaves by a french plantation owner. Meno told us 60 people were enslaved here and forced to work to produce molasses. All of the old buildings can be seen which is incredibly eerie. Worth a visit.

If you're the kind of traveler who likes to explore and avoid resorts, DO NOT come here.

This place has CHANGED! We came here because of all the great reviews, but it's now been claimed by the owner of Jade Resort and Anse Chastanet. If you aren't a resort guest, you're treated as a second-rate citizen. There are two small tables for non-guests, and if they're occupied, you are NOT ALLOWED to sit anywhere else. There were 10 empty tables for resort guests. After walking in the hot sun, 30-min of standing waiting for a table, we left.

Burgers are $25-35 USD (not including tax or service fees) for a burger. I'm from Manhattan where gourmet burgers aren't even that expensive! Piton beers are 375% more expensive than everywhere else.

The price gouging is so ridiculous, you'll find empty beach chair lounges everywhere because even their guests won't pay $66 to sit in one.

That said, St. Lucia is a great place to go if you have so much money you don't care if resorts are ripping you off.

The second "hidden" beach at the Anse Chastanet resort. Easily reachable by either a 10 min walk or complimentary water taxi. Access to Bike St Lucia and the hiking trails. Burgers & beers on what feels like your own private beach

A nice leg-stretching stroll from Anse Chastanet and very quiet with no cycling going on (during COVID). Base for lots of walks which would normally be biking trails

It’s a very short walk from Anse Chastanet beach. Dark sand, lots of sunloungers belonging to the local hotel, rough seas. Not a patch on a Cornwall beach but ok to visit

We walked here from our resort next door, and we are glad we did. Beautiful secluded beach with chairs, great snorkeling, a restaurant/bar, and an old plantation to explore if you get tired of the beach. We had lunch there, and while the burgers were not all that other reviews have made them out to be, they went perfect with the rustic setting. On the far end are large rocks which are good for snorkeling. We briefly explored the old plantation in the forest off the beach and enjoyed seeing the ruins of the buildings.

Beautiful beach and great food. My group all got burgers and we all loved them. The service was great. Very comfortable place to sit in the shade and eat. Our guide for the day Kieran took us there. He got points for that. Bathrooms were clean and nice.

A beautiful and quiet beach that is really worth the effort. One option is to water-taxi in and out - we never did it but saw a few people take this option. We drove to Anse Chastenet. The mile or so approach road is bumpy - but anything worth enjoying takes a little effort. Same with the walk from the parking lot - roughly 10 minutes across Anse Chastenet and around the ocean front access road. Once you are there it is totally worth it. Quiet, secluded, nobody on top of you or hawkers selling stuff. Great bar restaurant for food and drinks should you wish. Very clean and well kept and a much calmer experience than somewhere like Sugar Beach.
