Known for ideal snorkeling and scuba diving, the water at this beach is so clear that even snorkelers can make out the 400-foot SS Antilla shipwreck from the surface.

Great snorkeling

The snorkeling was great. It is a hidden spot and not much of a beach but worth the stop. We saw several barracuda's and other smaller fish. Tons of feeding fish in the reef.

I have snorkeled all over the world & this place pretty much beats them all! For a place you can drive right to , enter the water & see so much awesome marine life! Don't hesitate to explore this spot, no need to pay for a tour either, just check it out on your own!

Nice beach with fantastic snorkeling. Usually pretty easy to grab a bit of shady beach as well. Saw more starfish than ever before. Squid, octopus and a good sized barracuda too.

The snorkeling along the shore is great. We saw a variety of species, including star fish, sea turtles, gar, queen angel fish, hog fish, pufferfish, etc. However, do not try to snorkel to the ship wreck! It looks closer than it is, and there is a strong current on the swim back! Stick to the coast, and if you want... More

I stayed at the Palm Beach high rise area and Malmok was only 10 min drive for me. Malmok beach is a very small rocky beach with limited parking. Having said that, I went there twice and there were places to park both times. This is one of the places to snorkel in Aruba. There is a sand pit in... More

We took the grand kids snorkeling here this pat week. Ended up going back a second time after exploring other possibilities . Surf is non existent, calm as can be. Plenty of structure around to support marine life and there were a large number of varieties of tropical fish to observe as well and sea urchins etc. Parking is limited... More

This a very quiet and small beach only about 2 miles from where we were staying at the Marriott Surf Club. There are a few shady areas but they seem to fill up fast with people that bring their owns chairs. There are no amenities but there is excellent snorkeling near the shore. I'd recommend some type of water shoes... More

Found a little hidden cove with stairs cut out of the coral, water was so clear and there were tons of fish to see. Very private, I think it is a locals spot!
