Exotic fish, nice people. Too many big tour boats near shore though. Bus service is not on set schedule waited 45 mins one day and about 30 the next day.

The title says it all, this is the best beach in Aruba if you love snorkeling. Angel fishes, squids, groupers, large shells ... everything in a few meters ot water. The only negative point is that it can get quite crowded because of the commercial boats/cathamarans dropping large amount of people in the water

Walk in snorkel spot. A good variety of small fish. Gentle water with a very small beach. No facilities.

We spent a day on each of the snorkeling beaches but returned here for the last day of our vacation. Mangel Halto Beach was perhaps the most beautiful of the beaches and the snorkeling was okay. Baby Beach is very nice but more crowded, the snorkeling is in the roped off area to the left and there ARE alot of... More

If you enjoy snorkeling this is the place for you. Even the little kids there had a blast finding fish and starfish alike. My family and I spent a lot of time here, and it was GREAT!

Quiet little beach with several palapas for shade. Entry here is very easy. Even beginner snorkelers will have plenty to see staying close to shore. Get there early to snorkel the rocks to the north. On our last trip we saw an Octopus, Squid and an amazing spotted eel. Tons of fish, French and Queen Angels, Butterflys, Damsels, Trigger and... More

Small beach but you can not ask for better snorkeling. This is where all the snorkeling boat tours take their groups. Free parking or take the bus or taxi. Chairs can be rented and palapas are free. FYI you can snorkel as long or short a time as you like without having to pay for the tours which give their... More

We snorkeled here a lot during our two-week stay. Recorded a lot of underwater video from here up at least a 1/4 of a mile. The fish really put on a show for you through this area and there are many varieties to see.

We had a great visit to this beach. We took the bus to Ashanti. But it was cloudy there. We walked a little south and found a palapas put our stuff under the shade and headed out. Saw literally thousands of fish. The excursions boats were right off shore. We swam out by them and saw beautiful reef and fish.... More
