Anse Chastanet Beach and Reef, St. Lucia

4.3
#1 of 17 in Beaches in St. Lucia
A slice of paradise awaits at Anse Chastanet Beach and Reef, a curving bay with golden sand lined with coconut palms against turquoise waters. Situated within a reserve, the coral here teems with tropical marine life, tempting many visitors to grab their scuba gear and explore. Two volcanic plugs named "The Pitons" frame the cove as part of the impressive World Heritage Sites, and the plugs provide the namesake for Saint Lucia's local brand of beer. Bask on the sun-flecked shores between these two giant formations as you order cocktails from the nearby resort.

  • We went here to snorkel by boat and by land. Excellent snorkeling at both sides of Beach Inlet. The drive to here is an experience within itself, but worth it. Great food and drinks in a most relaxing atmosphere. Superb service in an upscale environment. Loved the "Dirty Banana."
  • Best beach on the island!!
  • Beautiful black sand beach. To the dock you can snorkel there are beautiful funds under sailors... coral and many fish. The location is superb weather and you have a restaurant on-site for lunch. The sunbeds are those of the hotel you can rent without problem.
