Activities at Anse Chastanet
Anse Chastanet is the only St. Lucia resort which encompasses more than 600 tropical acres and borders not only one but two soft sand beaches. There are so many activities on offer right on site than many guests feel that a return visit is needed to get to see the rest of the island!
Walking, hiking, birdwatching - all of these activities can be enjoyed on the resort property itself in addition to which there are daily scheduled excursions off property and all over the island.
Being located on the Caribbean coastline, the Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin beaches and bay are perfect for sun bathing and swimming in calm crystal clear waters.
Anse Chastanet is in the heart of St. Lucia's marine reserves and therefore offers excellent snorkelling and scuba diving right off shore. Non- motorized watersports are available from the resort watersports centre.
The old French Colonial plantation of Anse Mamin is located directly behind Anse Mamin beach and is a tropical garden of Eden with historical ruins dating back to the 18th century. The Anse Mamin plantation can be visited with one of the estate guides for a guided tour or guests can visit the plantation early morning or late afternoon for jogging on the estate trails. The resort mountain biking centre Bike St. Lucia also operates from the plantation and the active minded will enjoy a jungle biking adventure on one of the resort Cannondale mountainbikes.
