This stony beach located on the outskirts of Point Michele is a popular beach for swimming and snorkeling.
- Large stony beach close to Roseau
- Easy Access
- Close to nearby community
- Variety of wildlife such as Iguana's, Abolo's, Bats, Birds
- 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!
Driving south, past Point Michel, the entrance to the beach is marked by the sign "Irie Safari".
Parking is available on the side of the road in an area belonging to the bar/cafe Irie Safari.
To get to the beach walk down along the designated concreted path and along a boardwalk.
Anytime, but at midday the lighting is best for snorkeling and late afternoon is very pleasant for sunsets
