Anse Chastanet is situated on the west coast of St. Lucia. It is an enclosed bay with large cliffs to the south, a sandy beach in the centre and rocky outcrops to the north of the bay. The area has particularly good examples of open water fish species, that gather off the edge of the Marine Reserve, as well as a healthy array of sponge, hard corals and gorgonians.
This site was visited without the support of the resort.
