“A trip to Vanuatu isn't complete without visiting Champagne Beach”
Review of Champagne Beach

Champagne Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Champagne Beach certainly lived up to reviews I read about before my trip. The water is a lovely turquoise blue and incredibly warm and the white sand was soft like fine powder. My mum actually commented that the water was a little too warm for her as it was bath water temperature and she prefers to swim in colder water. Most of the passengers on our cruise loved snorkelling and swimming in the warm water though. :)

Make sure to take Australian Dollars with you if you plan to purchase drinks (non alcoholic or alcoholic), snacks or trinkets from the market (if you're visiting as a part of a cruise). If you do visit on a cruise ship you won't have to pay an entry fee but I've heard that if you visit on your own you'll have to pay to gain entry to the beach. There are also clean toilet facilities available.

Just make sure to steer clear of the dogs that roam around the beach and to take reef shoes. The side of the beach near the pier has soft sand underfoot in the water but the right hand side of the beach has a lot of coral under the water, to watch out for.

Wow, what a great beach. Only 6 other people around too. The water was fantastic. I swam out to the markers and it was glorious. The sand was clean and white. They have huts along the beach for when the cruise ships come in and the locals use them to sell there wares. Toilets are available.

We had the beach to ourselves, but there are signs to could be very busy with cruise ship passengers. Lots of huts line the beach - for traders selling to tourists? These were empty when we were there. No access to the toilet block due to the keys not being available. The other toilet accessible was really unusable. Perhaps some of the entry fee could be spent on some usable facilities? Also there was rubbish amongst the trees. Cows roam freely, so watch out where you walk!

Nevertheless, white powder like sand and clear warm water make this a special place to see.

The place was excellent, beautiful clear water, snorkelling was great plenty to see.
There is local markets and local seafood that you can purchase.
