“Awesome jungle biking with informative tour too”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

his was one of the highlights of our honeymoon in Saint Lucia this October. The biking is in-shore from the Anse Mamin beach, accessible just north of Anse Chastanet by foot or water taxi.

We fancied a bit of exercise and expected to turn up, rent the bikes and just explore so it was a little unusual to have a detailed explanation of how to use the brakes and change gears as well as a guided tour of some of the riding routes. The bikes were very good quality Cannondales, the route is shaded, and we didn't find it too buggy. This turned out to be really fun and great activity to do as a couple.

Joevin, our guide, was really chirpy and entertaining, stopping periodically for our group of four cyclists to explain the potential routes we could take, pointing out flora and picking various fruits for us to try (so tasty) and even opening a cocoa pod for us to try (like science fiction by the way – feels a bit like opening an alien pod and eating its brain!)

We also saw the site of the old sugar plantation and he explained its history and the production process. There's an old ruined house of the original plantation owner that's viewable too.

After 45 mins to an hour of being guided you can roam free around the various trails which have different levels of difficulty. We stuck to the “novice” and “adventurous” options but found there were often little off-trail options that I could have a go on to make life interesting while my wife stuck to the main routes. We lasted another hour and a half or so before being too hot to continue so we retired to the beach for a tasty lunch.
