Almond Bay


A relatively little-known beach a five-minute walk downhill from the main island road, tiny Almond Bay has lovely white sand, calm clear water and very few visitors. There are a few stands serving drinks and simple snacks, and you can also hire snorkeling equipment. However, the beach has almost no shade, so consider bringing an umbrella.
