Almond Bay, Providencia Island

4.1
#8 of 11 in Things to do in Providencia Island
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.

  • If you did not do a course of diving on the island you can be in this place and go next to the rocks and you'll see fish many more big that you can see in San Andres and a few metres from the beach.

  • Crystal clear waters, enchanting sandy beach bar without interest. But a gem hidden (barely) to crack out of the world.

  • There is a place where lunch is delicious the lobster is giant is worth 50 000 in garlic sauce delicious, beer and cocktails and you relax in the hammock. and then you look at the beach and say that beautiful view, and then cojes your snorkel and you get to spend and it's literally as if busearas shallow there is coral less than 5 metres from the beach and if you're going to the rocks on the left you'll see all kinds of fish and coral. It is beautiful and quiet, for my the best beaches. It's like a giant swimming pool.
