Best place in boring Providencia Island however you need to get there by boat or kayak and pay the fee for entering the Island :) This is a must while you are in Providence!

One of the nicest places in Providencia, the sea is amazing there. Specially nice for snorkelling; it is not that full of people

A wonderful little rock in the middle of a gorgeous national park. Ideal for swimming and snorkelling. The water is clear and very clean. There is large deck to just relax and sunbathe, plus a place for drinks and small snacks. A must when visiting charming and beautiful Providencia.

Tiny island off the north coast and worth a visit. We snorkelled with turtles and the water is warm and turquoise. We went over around 1pm when it was pretty busy but by 3 we had the place almost to ourselves. Great fun.

This needs to be your #1 thing to do on Providencia. Not only is it absolutely stunning, but snorkeled with the rays and the sea turtles. They were very unperturbed. After our snorkeling, we climbed to the top of the island for amazing views of the water--SUCH COLOR

A short boat trip from the Deep Blue Hotel (5 mins) takes you to the pier on the Cay. There is an entrance charge of 15,000 COP for non-colombians. A short climb takes you to the top of the Cay which will give you 360 perspective of the surrounding area. Snorkeling equipment is a must to explore the sea around... More

Awesome views! Peaceful and wonderful to swim around. Climbing the rock is a must in order to see the seven beautiful colors of the sea

We went by kayak from maracaibo to Crab Cay, the place is amazing for snorkeling and have a great 360 view from the rock on the top of the hill. Is part of national natural parks of Colombia, then an entrance fee is charged, for this my only recommendation will be to promote better the cleanliness of this beautiful place... More
