Take a short drive from the heart of Soufriere to bask in the beauty of Sulphur Springs, St. Lucia. Due to its extraordinary natural pressure, Sulphur Springs is made of about 24 bubbly holes that offer a wonderful sight of this natural creation. Admire the water in the craters, as the iron sulphate blackens the water and reaches a temperature of 171° C. Sulphur Springs is a part of the famous Drive-In Volcano experience.

This bubbling phenomenon is where a portion of the volcanic rim collapses and opens part of the island’s crust to create a spectacular attraction. Enjoy your tour of Sulphur Springs, as you stand or walk along on the wooden boardwalk to get the best views of the crater. At Sulphur Springs you will see a stream that runs through the crater, and further below is where you can bathe in the hot springs to enjoy a relaxing natural spa treatment within the mud pools. Be careful as these pools are a bit hotter than the average hot bath.
