  • Large stony beach close to Roseau
  • Easy Access

  • Underwater volcanic activity which makes this site unique - swim in warm "champagne-like" bubbles!

Champagne is part of the Soufriere-Scott's Head Marine Reserve so there are some restrictions to protect the site.

The most prominent bubbles are found towards the end of the beach.

DID YOU KNOW?
Volcanic Activity is the cause of all the bubbles in the sea and even on the beach. In some cases people dig little holes at the water's edge. The hotwater surfaces and mixes with the cooler sea water allowing people to lie in it. Be careful though - It can be very hot!
