The road from Soufriere to Anse Chastanet is absolutely terrible and deliberately so I am told, in order to keep to keep the Riff Raff out .... Anse Chastanet beach is used by the high end visitors of the best (and most expensive) hotel in...More
All of the beaches on St. Lucia are "public". AKA all of the nice ones you read about are guarded by a terrible access road leading up to a resort that basically 1) controls the road/parking leading up to the beach (some resorts charge you...More
Visited this beach as part of a dive and snorkel trip. In terms of diving, there were two wrecks to see, alongside a brilliant reef with fish and lobsters! Some other divers on our boat saw a turtle on one wreck as well. In terms...More
For our holiday in St Lucia we hired a 4x4 Suzuki Jimmy and found it to be a worth while choice when we visited Anse Chastanet Beach today. The road is challenging if you are not expecting it but upon the return we found ourselves...More
We are staying just up the road so came to check it out. The area allowed for non-guests of the hotel is small and they charge $33 for two beach lounge chairs and an umbrella. That’s par for the area. The water is warm and...More
The Marine Reserve (roped off on the southern extreme) is a demonstration of why early efforts matter. I've been diving this every 1-2 years for over a dozen years, and the fish life in the reserve and surrounding areas keeps getting better and more diverse....More
Anse Chastanet is famous for its snorkeling. Particularly the north side. You can't use the hotel beach facilities though. You can ignore the signs that push non-hotel guests to the south side of the beach, or follow them and swim north. The shops are high-end...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 Soufriere - lots of water taxis available at the dock - only about a 10 minute boat ride. This is a good option because the road into the resort is not in great shape.
