Volcanic Mud Bath & Botanical Gardens

Volcanic Mud Bath & Botanical Gardens

Explore the Caribbean's only drive-in volcano at Sulphur Springs Park, relax in warm medicinal mud pools, enjoy a guided tour of the Diamond Botanical Gardens with a quick dip in their warm mineral water pools followed by a tasting of local snacks at a historic Sugar Mill.

Set off from Soufriere dock on a captivating journey through the historic streets of Soufriere, leading to Sulphur Springs Park, home to the Caribbean's exclusive drive-in volcano. Here you will indulge in the therapeutic warmth of the natural volcanic mud baths. The mud helps draw out toxins from the body, leaving the skin refreshed. Due to its water solubility, the mud in its natural form allows the skin to absorb nutrients from it. Due to the high mineral content, mud baths have been used for thousands of years as medicinal treatments.

Next continue to the enchanting Diamond Botanical Gardens for a guided tour of the gardens, including an impressive view of the Diamond waterfall. At the Diamond Mineral Baths there is time for a quick dip in the tranquil therapeutic mineral water pools before venturing to the historic Old Sugar Mill. Dating back to 1765, this historic estate factory once processed sugar cane and powered the village of Soufriere with its waterwheel-generated electricity. Enjoy local refreshments amidst its open-air charm before concluding your excursion with a scenic drive back to Soufriere dock to rejoin your SeaDream yacht.

Notes: Wear cool comfortable clothing and shoes for the walk to the mud baths and guided tour of the Diamond Botanical Gardens. Guests should bring a towel from the yacht, cameras, insect repellent - if allergic to the tropics. Swimwear should be worn underneath clothing. The mud baths have changing rooms, however they are rustic and natural, reflecting the outdoor environment. Due to the presence of sulphur in the mud baths, there may be a distinct smell, and it can also cause discoloration of swimwear. Therefore, we recommend wearing dark-colored swimsuits.
