Almond Bay, Providencia Island

(80+ reviews on the web)
Outdoor Activity
Head to Almond Bay, a pristine, white sand beach with crystal clear waters and a calming atmosphere. Snorkeling has become a popular activity in the area due to the biodiverse marine life, or simply bring a book and relax. Look out for the unmissable large octopus sculpture on the side of the road as you approach the beach. You’ll also find a snack and handicrafts stand, so be sure to pack some change. One of the more remote beach areas on the island, the best way to get here is by taxi; walking from any destination in Providencia is not recommended. Make Almond Bay part of your personalized Providencia Island itinerary using our Providencia Island tourist route planner.
