BeachNuts Beach Guide for:

Anse Couchon

Anse Couchon is located south of Marigot Bay on the southwest coast of St. Lucia. Anse Cochon is one of the prettiest and most romantic beaches on the Island.

This remote black-sand beach is accessible only by boat. The turquoise waters are well worth exploring for their plentiful coral reefs and marine life.

Swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving are excellent since the waters are very calm.

Thrill seekers and adventure lovers will enjoy exploring underwater - where the Lesleen M, a 165-ft freight carrier vessel was deliberately sunk to create an artificial reef.

It's worth visiting this sandy strip of beach though the accessibility is a bit inconvenient.
