Anse Chastanet Beach and Reef, St. Lucia

4.1
#2 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.

  • Getting there is a nightmare. The road is unpaved, full of stones and bumpy bumpy for miles...this is no way to get to a beach. A visit by yacht or boat is best to get there.  more »

  • Excellent diving...excellent dive staff. The drive up is a bit rough in a small car; would better in a high-clearance SUV. Take your time, enjoy the view, and honk the horn at the blind curves...it's worth the 13-minute drive.
  • Road is extremely pot holed/decayed, it takes 20 minutes to drive from the main road as you can't go more than 5 miles per hour or your car will shake to pieces. Best not to do it in anything smaller than an SUV. Unfortunately when you get there, it is a very small area of the beach which is actually available to the public. The hotels have land grabbed the main area of the beach, which you can only get to through a beach bar, which you are not allowed into if you are not a resident of the aforementioned hotels. So what is available is somewhat underwhelming. The snorkeling is apparently fantastic though.
