this is one of the spots the snorkeling trips may take you to...but you do not have to be on a paid boat excursion to access the great snorkeling. You can enter directly from the beach. Park and enter on the right of the rock wall. Entering is a bit rocky but less so than on the left side of... More

Not as great as Boca Catalina since the palapas are right next to the road (Boca Catalina is a bit more private), but right next door, basically. Same reef, same sea life. Great snorkeling spot!

Beautiful beach, not too windy to lay on a towel. There are no washrooms, showers, or food so plan accordingly. The ice cream truck usually comes around a few times per day.

Spent 2 hours snorkeling right off the beach. Took a taxi from Holiday Inn Resort. $12 ride one way for two passengers. About a 15min ride north of Palm Beach. Pelicans watched us as we put on fins and goggles. You walk right from the rock shore into water and begin snorkeling among sea creatures. I spent 2 hours in... More

Pretty rocky area, so the shells get beat up as they come in...but there are tons of them all around the beach.

We drove here yet could of walked from our hotel unlike the boats filled with paying tourist looking for a place to snorkel. Easy access to the beach and plenty of maneuverable water access. Nice place to snorkel.

A nice isolated beach within walking distance of Palm beach if you are used to hiking. A bit rustic and rocky so bring beach shoes. But pretty and quiet place to watch the Pelicans dive for fish or do some fishing yourself

Many of the snorkel trips that tourists book end up bringing people to the area between Malmok Beach and Arashi beach. You can do it yourself (providing you have your own gear) for about $5 each. Take the Arubus out to Arashi Beach - check with the online schedule for times. The main bus station is very close to the... More

Malmok Beach is used mainly by local Aruban families but offer visitors a great place to snorkel and enjoy the beach. There is a small sand beach and chairs are available for rent, but you can leave your stuff on the beach and go in without any fears. The water is crystal blue and the fish swimming close to shore...
