Most of the locals didn't know it as Champagne beach so I dont know if its a new name? but we eventually found it on our way back to town from Scotts Heads. There was only 1 scuba shack and tourists in the water, they...More
Having suffered tremendously from the hurricane, the beach and reef are not what they once were, but still enjoyable to visit and spend some time in the water. The beach is accessible via a gravel path that is about a 5 minute walk. I would...More
I don’t quite understand the excitement about this beach. I didn’t find it so special. Yes, there is some snorkeling but again, didn’t think it was much different to what we saw on other occasions. Also the famous bubbles are not that easy to find....More
When you get there you park at a little restaurant that has great food. Very limited menu but real tasty. Small picnic tables overlooking the sea,and many iguanas in the surrounding trees. You walk down a small path to a dive shop that sells beer...More
The beach was deserted apart from ourselves and our guide took us in to snorkel and pointed out bits of a shipwreck, and brought things tot he surface for us to see or pointed out things on the sea floor. Snorkeled through the champagne like...More
we snorkeled at the Champagne Beach and loved the experience. In the water for almost an hour and the viewing of the bubbles and fish was wonderful. The crew was knowledgeable and very helpful. this area was devastated by Hurricane Maria, so the access was...More
Unpretentious snorkel site, with a nice selection of fish if you swim south of the end of the beach.
Just keep going!

it depends on the amount of time you have. you will need about 6-8 hours to do both. The only problem I see for you is that the Champagne beach gets very busy when a ship is in port, and the entrance into the water area of Champagne beach is very small. The water is packed with people, and the beach is packed with people as well. This is not your typical beach, no sand just rocks. My suggestion is just bring goggles and a snorkel, and definitely wear water shoes this will allow you to bypass everyone trying to put on their flippers, and get you in the water much faster.. Remember this area is very small and very rocky. However , when you are in the water, it is worth it. Spend about 20 minutes taking in the bubbles, and look at some fish, that are just average, and get going to your next stop.
