The Caribbean sea offers a lot of experiences
Beaches and snorkeling
The nearest beaches are Anse Chastanet/Anse Mamin and Soufriere Beach. It’s a difficult walk there and back so we recommend you drive or be driven to/from the beach.
All the beaches in St Lucia are public, up to about 200 feet from the high-water mark. If a resort tries to “discourage” you from using the adjacent beach, tell them you know that beaches are public near the waterline. However, please respect that their facilities are for the use of their guests (use our beach equipment or rent theirs). If you use our driver, he can help you get settled in the right place.
Unless otherwise noted, the snorkeling is accessible from the shore.
There are numerous dive sites in St Lucia, from beginning to advanced. Most of them are in the south, near the villa. There are two SCUBA providers nearby – Action Adventure Divers (“Chester”) in Soufriere and “SCUBA St Lucia” (affiliated with Anse Chastanet resort).
You can also find SNUBA and Sea Trek, but those are only in the north at Pigeon Island, about a 90-minute drive away.
Do you prefer staying on top of the water? Then you are in luck as there are a lot of options nearby!
Dolphin/whale-watching tour on a catamaran, deep-sea fishing, a half-day or full-day day sail, a sunset sail and kayaking are all accessible within a few minutes’ drive (some are associated with resorts and availability may be prioritized to their guests).
Further away in Vieux Fort, you can wind or kite surf. A longer drive to the north and you can parasail, Hobie Cat or jet ski, or slip and slide and bounce around on a water park built with inflatables.
