#3 of 16 in Beaches in St. Lucia
A slice of paradise awaits at Anse Chastanet Beach and Reef, a curving bay with golden sand lined with coconut palms against turquoise waters. Situated within a reserve, the coral here teems with tropical marine life, tempting many visitors to grab their scuba gear and explore. Two volcanic plugs named "The Pitons" frame the cove as part of the impressive World Heritage Sites, and the plugs provide the namesake for Saint Lucia's local brand of beer. Bask on the sun-flecked shores between these two giant formations as you order cocktails from the nearby resort.
