The Alma (Ukrainian: Альма; Russian: Альма, Crimean Tatar: Alma) is a small river in Crimea that flows into the Black Sea. Its mouth is 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.

Near the Alma river the allied British, French, and Ottoman armies defeated the Russians under Prince Aleksandr Sergeevich Menshikov on 20 September 1854.
