This beach is good for snorkelling, no facilities so bring a cooler and lunch. Parking was never a problem,. Limited shade.

We were brought there by our ship on a catamaran tour. It is a very good spot for snorkeling. I saw a lot a fish; in fact so much that they were bitting me. I really love that place. Water is calm , about 14 feet deep and clear. So enjoy it.

This small beach is well known for its walk in off the beach snorkeling, and you can see an amazing array of fish and coral without taking a tour or getting on a boat. But there is little shade so come prepared.

Walk in from the shore to see clouds of colorful fish. No current to fight and plenty deep. Coral is small but in good condition. Fish are the main attraction here, I think the snorkel boats feed them. Swim out to where the snorkel boats are for the same experience for free. You can also rent chairs here.

If you are there for the snorkeling then you have found the right beach; but if you are just strolling make sure you bring a pair of sandles or shoes due to the mix of sand and lava rock. Not sandy like the other beaches south (palm/eagle). We were there the second week of February 2014 and walked all the... More

Didn't snorkel on this trip as we came here after finding Arashi full with no palapas available. There are only a few on Malmok, but there were two open when we got there. The beach is picturesque with the snorkeling boats anchored just off the beach. There is a small area of sandy bottom where one could swim, but the... More

Loved it! Surely recommend! Clear and "calm" water, enough to see many fishes, and perfect for snorkel.

I was there on boat and I could see a starfish. The colour of the water is so great that I think I have never seen it before in my life. Aruba is perfect!!!

Long stretches of powdery white sand and virtually empty compared to Eagle Beach. Not many facilities but who needs to rent chairs when the sand is so soft- just thrown your towel down already! Matthews was close by and a great place to order cocktails- especially between 4 and 6 when drinks are 2 for 1- try the Blue Hawaiian!... More

Not much of a Sandy beach. Lava ledges can be dangerous. Be careful of jelly fish during certain tides.
