To describe ALMA as a rooftop lounge with a view is an understatement – this trendy bar truly has one of the most beautiful panoramas of Holbox’s crystal turquoise-green sea on the island. In fact, the vista alone makes a stroll down the beach for a visit well worth it without even considering everything else ALMA has to offer.
Situated on the raised level of Hotel Villas Tiburón, looking out onto Holbox’s main beach, ALMA Bar encompasses everything you could want in a modern beach-side bar. The shallow terrace swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off while you sip on one of the many tasty cocktails available. And don’t forget to reserve one of the large shady VIP beds or comfortable restful sunbeds – easy-going, relaxing ambience at its best. That’s something that this boho-chic bar does so well; it stays true to its island roots while offering an element of style to its clients.
As well as an extensive alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks menu, ALMA Bar also serves a range of flavoursome tapas, including tortillas topped with salami, brie and olives, or fresh ceviche tostadas. And if that’s not enough to entice you down the beach, the modern chill-out music, afternoon invited DJS and pool-side parties offer you the ideal place to sit back, take in the incredible surroundings and enjoy a lazy afternoon in the pool amongst friends or your loved one.
We recommend you try
Try a refreshing ALMAlibre – lemon daquiri with basil, or if you’re really thirsty, a Mexican Bulldog – a huge frozen margarita served with cool beer.
