Named for the bubbling waters rising from volcanic thermal springs on the ocean floor, Champagne Reef attracts diving and snorkeling enthusiasts from around the world.
Champagne Beach is about 30 minutes drive from Cocoa Cottage, on the South-West coast of Dominica.
The bubbles are at the South end of the beach, in front of a fallen white tree, close to the coast.
The reef, which is really a beautiful snorkeling spot, is further out. Swim out about 100-150 meters, and around 100 meters further south than the bubbles. You will find several large coral encrusted rock formations and a 30 meter deep almost perpendicular wall with huge sponges and other colorful reef creatures.
There is a small bar called Donnie’s Shop, where you can ask for a guide for exploring the reef, or rent equipment.

Titou Gorge is a magic place to visit. It is a narrow gap or crack between two high rock walls. A stream flows at the bottom of this crack, and the sunlight shines in from far above. You swim into the Gorge in the stream, for about 50 meters, until you reach the end of the Gorge. There you find a waterfall. If you dare to, you can get very close to the waterfall and bathe under it. The distance between the walls is about 5 meters, and there is no place to stand up or to hold on to. So please put the life jacket on that is supplied to you at the entry to the Gorge. Continue reading “Titou Gorge”

Instead, enjoy the original atmosphere and the friendly people and be part of the Dominican family. Please ask our staff for information about opening hours. It might be better to call the restaurant before you go there. Especially for the restaurants close by, it is a good idea to call them in the morning if you want to go there for dinner.
