“WOW”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is a beautiful place. But don't tell everyone, lets keep it quiet so we can enjoy the seclusion and peaceful atmosphere.
The beach is accessed by water or through the Anse Chastanet resort. The road to Anse Chastenet is another experience in itself. rocky, steep, twisting, with magnificent views along the way. Keep our eyes on the road !

“Interesting walk off the beach”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

You can get here by water taxi, or if you stay at Anse Chastanet by their water taxi. The beach is pretty well deserted. The loungers are of a lower quality than the Anse. The service stops at 3 pm. The water is difficult to get in and out of given the many rocks, tough waves just at the "dip" where you go from ankle to hip depth (off the shelf). A fabulous snorkel one-way from here to the Anse next beach over, drift and enjoy. The ruins are not terribly exciting, but add an interesting 15 minutes to your stay.

“Best Burger EVER!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Please go and enjoy a buger for me. Tell Flora that I said Hello!! What a cool little place.I would recommend snorkling over from The Anse Chastanet and then gliding back on the current. The burger is so good I could of eaten it every day.

“A tiny quieter beach within easy walking distance.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Terrific small lunch menu and possibly the world's greatest mohito.
There is nothing to dislike, unless warm seas and white sands disturb you.

“Quiet, Stunning Beach”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Thanks to the previous Tripadvisor posters who pointed us in the direction of this gem!

After taking the twist, bumpy, potholed, "what the heck am I doing driving on this" road from Soufriere to Anse Chastanet, you park at the lot before the Security Gate. Walk the short distance to Anse Chastanet Beach (busy!) and when you are facing the sea, turn right off the beach area onto a dirt road/trail. It is an interesting 10 minute walk along the shore to Anse Mamin beach. We were there on a weekday around 3 PM and there were only 6 people on the gorgeous little beach.

There was a path going from the beach into the jungle. Go past the small building for "Bike St. Lucia" (restroom is there) and keep walking a little way. You'll find the picturesque ruins of stone buildings that made up a sugar processing center many years ago. The jungle is taking over these structures which makes the site all the more photogenic and interesting.

Anse Mamin is what you picture in your mind when you imagine what an ideal Caribbean beach looks like.
