Almond Bay, Providencia Island

4.1
#9 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.

    The small Almond Bay requires a few minutes walk to the beach, which is quiet and empty on days when I visited. Next to the Octopus on the side of the road, there's a parking lot to let motorcycles and cars. On the beach there is a small bar serving drinks.

    Quiet but beautiful beach, a couple of minutes walk down from the road but well worth it. A small group of locals have a stall selling fresh fruit juices and cocktails - delicious!  more »

    leave the bike in the Avenue, because income is pedestrian, is a long and way tired, when you get to the beach is small and almost empty. Cute place but there are better beaches.
