Anse Chastanet, Saint Lucia
A beautiful and relaxing, late fall trip to the Caribbean proves to be a wonderful destination for all types of outdoor recreation seekers.
Brian Van Drie, paddling.net co-owner, and his wife, Kara, spent seven days on the tropical island of Saint Lucia. There they met many other adventurous vacationers from around the world who chose Anse Chastanet as their luxurious destination. The staff at the dive shop and jungle biking center, headed by Bernd were knowledgeable and friendly, and served as the perfect hosts and guides on this warm weather adventure.
Anse Chastanet and its sister resort, Jade Mountain, are located a bit north of the fishing village of Soufriere on the island of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean Sea. The dive shop and jungle biking center serve both resorts. While the resort owns some of the most beautiful beaches imaginable, the variety of outdoor activities offered is sure to please any outdoor enthusiast. This is the perfect place for both the beach chair bum as well as the adventure junkie. Brian and Kara spent plenty of time relaxing but were also able to take in kayaking, diving, snorkeling, jungle biking, sailing, and beach side yoga.
The food and service are phenomenal and the setting is breath-taking. Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain are both very luxurious resorts that transport you back in time before ocean breezes were replaced with air-conditioning and mountain side views were replaced by paved super resorts. Saint Lucia's natural beauty and grandeur is thoughtfully integrated into your vacation experience at these beautiful resorts.
