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 spot to learn to windsurf. There are several spots offering lessons. We were here many times to learn and rent. The wind is a bit gusty but the water is fairly shallow and you cannot get into trouble. Loved it. Easy to walk here from all hi-rises. Easy parking if you have a car.

Bring your own, mask, snorkel and fins and ride the bus ($2.30) to Malmok Beach. No bathroom facilities but thatched huts with tables to get under. Some kids found an orangish-red starfish. Saw sea urchin and small tube coral. Caught a small bus for $2.30 which takes you right into your neighborhood hotel.

Every year in the past that we have gone to Aruba we have gone out with Captain Jethro on the Octopus. I have reviewed them before and there is nothing at all wrong with doing a snorkel trip that way. You do get food and also a visit to the sunken ship. This year we just went to Malmok Beach... More

Go early before the tour boats show up and you will be rewarded with great sea life. Turtles abound and are not shy about swimming along with you.

Did you know that you can take a bus ($2.30 each way) to Malmok and have some of the best snorkeling in Aruba. We discovered this economic way a few years ago and it's a well kept secret. Malmok Beach is where the "tour boats" take you on the snorkeling trips and you can do it for $4.60.

This was our second trip to Aruba. Last time, we went on all the excursions that you pay tons of money for. This time, we decided to rent a car and use my new friend "TripAdvisor" to do many things on our own. That's why I now feel like I need to pay it forward by leaving reviews as well.... More

Great area to snorkel. Lots of different types of fish and starfish in deeper water. Very clear water so it is easy to see and experience swimming among the fish.

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!
