Property Description

Grand Anse means “Big Bay” in French Creole and there are a number of Grand Anse’s in the Caribbean. The approximate one and a quarter mile long sandy beach is one of the most picturesque and dramatic in St. Lucia, perhaps in the entire Caribbean. The straight mile of golden sand is an anomaly on the Atlantic coast of the island which is known for its dramatic elevation changes, cliffs, coves, and other inlets. Grande Anse comprises approximately 1,600 acres of stunning, undeveloped land. The cool Trade Winds of the Atlantic and the extensive reef creates a continuous mesmerizing surf. The extraordinary beauty of this coastal landscape is truly breath-taking.

The Grande Anse property is contoured as a natural amphitheater, with mountain ridges on three sides which all focus on the expansive ocean activity. Significant mitigating engineering will be required for SAFE swimming. From every angle, one can enjoy a panoramic view of the beach. The highest elevation is about 1200 ft above sea level. The main valley offers hundreds of acres of flat land, including about 60 acres of beachfront property (known as the “Queen’s Chain”). Three small watersheds run through the property, two form lagoons on the Grande Anse Beach. Most of the property is forested with secondary tropical growth as well as coconut palms and exotic fruit trees. A diversity of lush plant and wildlife can be found on the estate. 

The North-East Coast has been branded the Iyanola region – The Land Where Iguanas Live, St. Lucia’s original name. Four different species of marine turtles – loggerhead, green, leatherback and hawksbill turtles — nest on Grand Anse beach. The giant Leatherback turtle lays its eggs during the period from March to August. The turtles are protected by law, and the “Desbarras Turtle Watch” is organized by the community of Desbarras. The turtle nesting and conservation of these rare animals can become a key attraction for visitors and researchers. The area is also a bird-watchers paradise; species such as the white breasted thrasher and the St. Lucia nightjar are commonly found here. Furthermore, the property contains one of the island’s most significant archeological sites dating back to the period of the Amerindians. The pre-Columbian theme could be incorporated into a project design concept which has not yet been done on St. Lucia.

Additional details

  • Location & Access: Grande Anse is located on the North East coast of St. Lucia, 4.0 miles east of Babonneau and about 12 miles east of the capital of Castries. The entire North-East Quadrant of St. Lucia is home to less than 15,000 people, making it the most sparsely populated portion of the country. Spanning the length of the Babonneau, Grande Anse, and Dennery communities, these 10,440 acres have vast potential for tourism, largely owing to the pristine environment and picturesque landscape. The property is comprised of Grande Anse Estate and D'est D'Hers Estate and is registered under plot number 1847B/1. It is bounded by the Marquis (Deveaux) Estate to the north, several smaller estates to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the East and Louvet Estate to the south. To the south of Grande Anse beach, there is a smaller, more protected cove, Anse Sorciere, which has a sandy beach about 150 ft in length. (Estate Louvet is not a part of this offering). The circumference of the property is approximately seven and a half miles. Grande Anse can be accessed via the Castries-Gerand main road, which is presently not in good condition. The last two miles of road leading up to the community of Desbarras are unpaved, and marginal. From the entrance of the property down to the beach, there is a very rough, unpaved road which has a rock base. Only experienced drivers with four wheel drive should venture on to the property. Roads on private land are the responsibility of the land owner. Several old road bases exist on the property. Crushed rock and sand are readily available on site for construction. The proposed Grande Anse Parkway (an estimated 26.5 kilometres or 16 miles) will provide access to approximately 8,500 acres of undeveloped land for residential and tourist property development. Once this road has been completed, major tourist amenities and resorts in the north of the island will be just a 20 minute drive away. This includes a state of the art marina in Rodney bay, as well as numerous resorts, shopping centers, restaurants, nightlife and casino. A challenging 18-hole championship golf course is already situated at Cap Estate.
