"Alligator Pond Beach" Alligator Pond by GenXVoice
Alligator Pond Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos
It is said that Alligator Pond received its name from the locals due to its bordering cliffs which give have the appearance of an alligator's back.
The sand is black and makes the ocean look dark and ominous. Just over that little hill we strolled deep into the villages and found a freshwater spring that was like our own private swimming pool.
Aside from a local fisherman mending his net and a men sanding a boat just up the road when we drove into the area - there was a soul around for miles.
I've seen wild horses on a beach - but never wild cows. I am a native Floridian and am no stranger to seeing cattle roaming, and yes, sometimes even in the wild - but never have I seen cows which live and roam on the coastlines. It was beautiful. Surreal. And added a whole new level of chill to my day.
Waves tumble in like rolling sheets of black glass. Of course when you look down you see your legs and feet same as anywhere when swimming in the ocean - but still feels a bit more adventurous - like you're swimming in some forbidden sea straight out of a science fiction novel.
- Pros:Wild untamed beaches with NO tourists.
- Cons:No mojitos from the tiki bars. ; )
