Crab Cay, Providencia Island

4.7
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Providencia Island
Take a boat to Crab Cay and spend some time swimming in its clear turquoise waters. The small 2 hectare (5 acre) island has little besides palms and coconut trees, crabs, and some lizards. Sunbathe and take a dip, or consider snorkeling among the patches of coral to see colorful reefs and numerous fish species. Climb to the top of the cay for panoramic views of the blue Caribbean waters or relax in the shade with a delicious coconut drink. Bring your camera to capture this picturesque spot.

    A round trip you can take to the island making the hotels (worth approx. 30 USD / person) and arrive at this beautiful place. There is sale of crab empanadas and a few spirits. Wear mask for snorkeling and give it all the way to the key. Climb to the top of the rock that crowns the Caye is simply beautiful, one of the best panoramic I've seen in my life. Wear comfortable shoes because it can be complicated to climb the rock even though it is small. Don't forget to visit this paradise on Earth
