Champagne Bay (aka Champagne Beach) is one of the Espiritu Santo Island's cruise ports - together with Luganville.
Vanuatu's Champagne Bay is famous for its white-sand beaches, and is one of the South Pacific's best beach vacation destinations. The port is visited on regular cruise itineraries leaving round-trip from Australia and New Zealand. Champagne Beach is very close to Hog Harbour, which is in close proximity to Port Olry.
Champagne Bay is located on the northeast coast of Espiritu Santo and gets its name from an interesting natural phenomenon. When the water is shallow at at low tide, it fizzes just like Champagne as it passes through the volcanic rocks on the sea floor.
many cruise ships dock in the bay and then tender their passengers to the pier. For most tourists, it is enough to enjoy the beauty of the lagoon and go swimming. Another popular activity there is snorkelling, with the reefs teeming with marine life offshore. The locals head to the beach when cruise ships are in to sell cold drinks and handicrafts, so it is a good place to pick up authentic souvenirs, such as mats, baskets, carvings, masks, bowls, shell and bead necklaces.
