Sulphur Springs Mud Baths

The world's only drive-in volcano!

The Sulphur Springs Park is in the crater of the Soufriere volcano, part of which is a fenced-off section of hot rocks, steam and boiling pools of murky water. Every full moon, the pools turn into geysers – apparently something to do with the tides – but for the rest of the time they just look like they belong in an evil wizard’s lair. The time to worry, apparently, is when the steam stops coming out as it means that the pressure is building up too much and an explosion is imminent. Mineral rich streams flow from the crater into well-organized mud baths, famous for its healing power!
