After visiting Scotts Head and being disappointed, we called into Champagne Beach. There was a charge of 2.5$ EC each. The people collecting the money were a little nebulous in giving information about exactly where to enter the water. We went to the end of...More

The first thing you need to know is there is NO beach. You enter the water from a rubber mat placed on the Rocky shore. Be sure to visit Champagne Beach when in Dominica. If you are going to Dominica you need to snorkel at...More
