The crescent of sand at Champagne Beach looks upon a lagoon fringed with coral. The beach gets its name from a phenomenon witnessed by the first travelers to the region -- the shallow waters appear to fizz at low tide, as if the beach is swimming in bubbly. In truth, the effect is caused by gas escaping from volcanic rocks on the sea floor. On the east coast of Espiritu Santo, the country's biggest island, Champagne Beach is a relatively popular tourist destination.

ESPIRITU SANTO - During WWII it was used by Allied forces as a military supply and support base, naval harbor, and airfield.
