Fodor's Expert Review Champagne

Soufriere Beach
Free Fodor's Choice

On the southwest coast, halfway between the villages of Pointe Michel and Soufrière, this stony beach is hailed as one of the best spots for swimming, diving, and (especially) snorkeling. Forget the sunning, though, because the beach is strewn with rocks. Champagne gets its name from underwater hot springs that constantly puff steam into the sea, which makes you feel as if you're swimming in warm Champagne. A boardwalk leads to the beach from Soufrière/Scotts Head Marine Reserve. Amenities: none. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.
