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!!!

This is our favorite Place to snorkel in Aruba. Not because the beach is nice. Because tourists rarely go to this area. The underwater sights are very nice. I've snorkeled with cuddles, grouper, fish balls, turtle, angels, pariots, cudas, needles and spots. The nothern wall have many small caves that house a great array of fish. As you move out... More

This beach is located at the far NW end of the island and the waters are nice and the wind seems to be a little calmer here. Nice relaxing beach and not as many people on the day I visited

Went snorkeling there twice. Looked like a terrific beach from the boats view. The houses and hotels in that area were very nice. I'd go back.

Great view of the sunset, but the beach lacked sand. What's a beach without sand - and lots of it? Not much to do along this beach.

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.
