Although I've seen better beaches in the Caribbean, this beach is stunning and certainly ranks up there. The pros: white powdery sand, crystal clear water, gentle waves, great for swimming. The cons: tends to be super crowded and chaotic on cruise days, lack of facilities (bathrooms/changing rooms). Some tips: Bring your own snorkeling gear as they are expensive to rent... More

This beach is absolutely beautiful. We arrived at approximately 2pm and ended up staying until the early evening. The water is crystal clear and the waves are very gentle, so it's also great for kids or those who aren't strong swimmers. I would strongly suggest bringing goggles to explore! The stores selling sarongs and other goods are slightly more expensive... More

Have to say one of the best beaches and swimming areas i have visited. There were 7 of us and we loved it. Swimming with the local kids was a highlight. Smooth white sand and lots if area to spread out. Will be back.

Very beautiful as long as you dont go on a cruise ship day. the market stalls and big yellow toilet block spoil the scenery

Absolutely the best beach I have ever been to. Most magnificent day spent on this island. Turquoise water and white white sand. The people were so welcoming and friendly, and my trip to blue lagoon in the back of a ute will be a lasting memory. Thank you Espiritu Santo.

We kayaked over to Champagne beach one day. This was an amazing experience. No people what so ever, gorgeous water, and so so tranquil. Of course, this is not the case every day as cruise ships may stop by. But if you are on Santo, you must go to this beach!

Stopped by during our cruise for a day trip. This is what a tropical beach is all about. Crystal clear water, enough coral and fish for a snorkelling day trip and the best village markets we encountered on our four shore days. Got off the boat fairly early and found a shady spot at the far end, huge trees provide... More

This must be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - with crystal clear turquoise water and soft white sand. Paradise. We did not want to leave. A must for your visit to the island!

This beach has to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. The local people are warm and welcoming, but the beach has to. E the most perfect places on earth. The water crystal clean and the perfect temperature for a refreshing swim. I highly recommend a day or two.
