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.

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... read more

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!

As with many of Aruba's beaches Malmok is very nice. There are a few Palapa's but no restrooms anywhere nearby so be prepared to travel should the need arise.

Malmok is a great place to snorkel. We've seen HUGE starfish, a good foot across while snorkeling here. Be VERY aware of the snorkel boats coming in. We almost got run over by a boat. Try to hit this spot when the snorkel trips are not there, you will have it to yourself. Pretty easy to get in and out... More

This was going to be our great snorkel spot. There were several snorkel tour boats while we were there. We swam out to where the boats were and the water for that day was very merky and the water was choppy. I saw a few fish but not near what I had expected. Cut my toe on a rock going... More

We went to Malmok Beach to snorkel during the day and enjoy tranquility and sundowns in the evenings. Small and lovely beach.

Loved that this beach is away from the more people filled beaches and snorkeling can be done the moment you get in the water. Fish circle you from every direction!!!
