Nice and pretty beach thats relatively small and short in length (in comparison to others on the island). Part of a resort but you can still access as a non-guest - the beach is split into two parts (with a restaurant in the middle that splits it) and I would say the resort side of the beach (with its pretty thatched beach huts) has the prettier views/beach and water.

To rent a lounger costs $20 (if you aren't a hotel guest) and the coast is covered with seaweed, so the area smells a little bit too! However, because of this, the waters are teeming with fish and sealife, so if you like snorkelling then this is the place for you!

Firstly I have to say that the beach is lovely and the water is great for snorkelling. Unfortunately you are treated like second class citizens from the staff that work in the Anse Chastanet resort. We sat down on a picnic table to have lunch after reading the reviews about how tasty the burgers were from here. We were then asked to move to another picnic table as we were not hotel guests. There is nothing to inform you of designated areas but we dutifully moved to another table. We then felt that we were a complete inconvenience to the waiter as the young ladies on the other table were of more interest to him. 🤣
Another warning is that the resort want to charge $66 US for a pair of sun loungers. We only wanted to stay for a couple of hours and there were 4 of us.
I have to say that the food was good. It’s just the overall experience get’s spoilt by the way you are made to feel.

It is lovely beach but $66 USD to rent two beach beds and a capabana/ umbrella is A LOT this week (we were a family of 4 so it was double the price). We were the only family there, no hotel guests all day long. It felt very private. Its a quiet season so why they insisted we sit in the non-resident guest section is beyond me. At the end of the day, if we are paying premium prices and patroning your food and drink, we should be treated the same as your hotel guests (there weren't any).

It's worth a visit, and it is a beautiful spot. Just beware you are beholden to their services as the hotelier has complete dominance you will not get change from 3 figures USD if you rent beds and eat and drink there. There is no competition. The burger bar is just ok. Ive had better burgers. The lettuce was limp and you don't get much with the burger. TIP, bring your own provisions or sit on a towel is the way to go if you don't want to pay 5* prices. Service was just OK. Not above a beyond for me to tip but it was fine.

Anse Chastenet is way overpriced. The resort is fine. It is on the beach, has fair rooms, good food, nice beach, good service. We've traveled to many parts of the world and all over the Caribbean, and this is an average resort in our experience.

The room and food price was outrageous - as another guest called it, extortionist prices. We felt exactly the same. When we booked our room, at the rate of nearly $1,400/night including 2 meals/day, we really expected the best. We were very disappointed when we arrived, but by then we were financially committed. It was, as I said above, fine, but not worth that kind of money in any way.

Also, the road into the resort is 1.5 miles of a difficult 4 wheeldrive rutty, rocky, holey road. Driving to explore the island was a hassle and unpleasant.

I would not recommend this place for the above reasons.

Staying at Anse Chastanet, we took Meno's birdwatching excursion. It was a two hour walk through forest and along the beaches with a running commentary with all the history and the details of the property and everything you'd wish to know about the flora as well as the fauna. Really beautiful and so much of the background of St Lucia. Highly recommended

The color of the sand is a little darker than you would expect in the Caribbean but the water is crystal clear. Today was sunny and there wasn’t a piece of seaweed or anything. Beautiful. We were able to rent two beach chairs and a tiki for $40.

Lovely little black sand beach. We stayed at anse chastanet and enjoyed the walk over to anse mamin. The burgers are seriously delicious. There is a jungle biking centre and hiking paths.
The MUST DO activity is the 1:45pm (approx) tour with Meno of the old sugar plantation ruins. A hugely important historic site to be aware of and learn about. People were taken from west Africa and were purchased as slaves by a french plantation owner. Meno told us 60 people were enslaved here and forced to work to produce molasses. All of the old buildings can be seen which is incredibly eerie. Worth a visit.

We choose this little gem twice over Anse Chastanet. Was worth the extra trek. Beach is beautiful and the snorkeling was great. We ate lunch there and the food was ok. People raved about the burger, but there was nothing special about it. Drink and food prices were high, but in sync with all the resorts. Price to rent (2) beach loungers and shade was $66US. Overall, a wonderful experience.

We loved the secluded feel of this beach and enjoyed the delicious Jungle Burger served there. The shuttle driver from Anse Chastenet where we were staying dropped us off there, or you can take the 10 minute walk from Anse Chastenet. Highly recommend.

Anse Mamin is where you want to go for a quiet, romantic, peaceful beach experience. Anse Chastanet is fine, but more crowded - go there in the evenings and/or for lunch or dinner and a drink and it's great.

Walk down the beach to Anse Mamin and you can have a completely private beach. We were by ourselves every time we went just by walking past the Chastanet area. We had beach chairs from our Airbnb (within walking distance) which was great. Just bring an umbrella as there isn't shade outside of the Anse Chastanet property.

I always get eaten alive by bugs - this was no different for me, but my husband didn't have one bite. Keep that in mind if you are prone to being snacked on. Bring bug spray and/or skin so soft for the sand fleas, if that's what it was.
