Volcano at Sulphur Springs

Home to the "world's only drive in volcano," Sulphur Springs does very literally allow guests to drive their car through the center of the dormant Soufriere Volcano.

A trip drive through the volcano leads to the very popular tourist attraction that is Sulphur Springs. Once upon a time you could get out of your car and walk around wherever you like, but the crumbling of the crater led to a tour guide being covered in third degree burns, and now guests are restricted to a wooden viewing area.


Volcano at Sulphur Springs, located within Sulphur Springs Park, lies on the island of Saint Lucia, 1.3 miles southeast of downtown Soufriere; it's 1.3 miles to the south-southeast of Soufrière.
