The best beach in the pacific

The sand is the softest finest white sand and the water warm and clear. It's a bit pricey to enter compared to other attractions on the island but still worth the experience.

The bluest and cleanest water I have ever seen. Cruise liners visit, ....not on our day thank heavens, locals set up their wrestling for the visit.

The other reviews have appropriately described this beach. It is very beautiful beach to swim and relax in the sun. Locals cannot recall a shark attack at the beach which was comforting. We went ashore from a cruise ship and it was somewhat crowded if you enjoy a peaceful location. I am sure it would be much better without the... More

The photos you find on the internet just don't do justice to how beautiful Champagne Beach really is! It is by far the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The day we went there were only a couple other people there. We went with Heritage Tours, which I recommend, they take you to blue holes, port olry may other... More

I have visited Champagne Beach several times now - it is gorgeous, the sand is incredible and the swimming is great. Only problem is on my second visit, a cruise ship was in - try and avoid visiting at these times - so many people "disgorged" onto a fairly small beach - it does lose its magic.

Breath taking, walk to the end and watch the fresh water coming from the sand. Port Olry was 10 out of 5 though.

The village that owns this beach charges 500 VD ($6NZD) as an entrance fee, which is quite fair. The snorkelling was surprisingly good on the left side of the five facing out( past the pier) but as there are days when cruise ship visitors overrun the place, I sincerely hope that the village will invest in several prominent signs to...

This is my favourite beach in the world. The water is so clear, the temperature is perfect. The sand is so fine, it is like putty in your hands when wet. Love, Love, Love it. No visit to Vanuatu is complete without going here.

An untouched paradise. Like a movie set with no one else there. Be aware of the entry fee. The locals can be very rude if you don't pay.

Champagne Beach is an amazing beach with incredibly blue water and white powdery sand. Just gorgeous! We stayed eight days at Towoc Champagne beach bungalows (a leisurely stroll from Champagne Beach and also on a lovely sandy beach with fresh water springs. There is no fee to visit Champagne beach if you stay at Towoc because the beach belongs to... More
