Diving & Snorkeling
St. Lucia boasts some of the best snorkelling in the Caribbean – locations such as Anse Chastanet beach are perfect for exploring the colourful marine life that thrives in the warm waters surrounding the island. St. Lucia diving is also second to none.
The Anse Chastanet Reef – to the west of St. Lucia – has been buoyed off for snorkelling so that no boats are able to interrupt your fun or disturb the fish. This particular reef has depths between five and 25 feet and harbours a huge variety of aquatic species. However, Anse Chastanet is only one place to enjoy St. Lucia’s incredible natural habitats. Many other beaches offer great St. Lucia snorkeling and a chance to witness the island’s marine life close up.
A number of St.Lucia tours are also available to other sites within the island’s marine park. Swimming in the shadow of the glorious Pitons is a wonderful experience and many companies offer boat rides out to special spots only reachable by boat.
Other sites include The Bone Yard, Saline Point, Turtle Reef and The Blue Hole – all of which are very accessible from Fond Doux Resort & Plantation.
