The Alma (Ukrainian: Альма; Russian: Альма, Crimean Tatar: Alma) is a small river in Crimea that flows from the Crimean Mountains in a broadly west-north-west direction to the Black Sea. Its mouth lies just south of Pishchane, halfway between Yevpatoria and Sevastopol. Alma is the Crimean Tatar word for an "apple".
The Alma is formed by the confluence of the Sary-su, the Savlykh-su and the Babuganka (Babuğan Yayla) rivers, and flows mostly through the mountains. The Alminskoye and Partizanskoye storage reservoirs are located along its course.
