A great dive, not just because of the Debbie II wreck but because of ample brain coral and schools of barracuda patrolling the area.

Access to reef snorkeling via beach. We swam here as part of a catamaran tour. Lots of fish and crystal clear water.

Went here two times on our last trip. Have been about 15-20 times--always fun. Easily accessble with only a car, and completely free. Easy shore access too. Other snorkelers saw a nice barracuda there this trip.

Palapas right by the water on this tiny beach. Very calm little cove perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Basically, the best snorkeling on the island- we bring our own equipment and stay in the low rise section, take the Arubus to the beach and snorkel all day. ($5) We see all kinds of fish, star fish, baby squid, puffer fish, etc. etc. Even more enjoyable watching the catamarans drop off snorkelers right in front of us who just... More

This area was not far from our hotel and we walked nearer and with the free snorkeling gear from the Riu we were able to see some beautiful fish and sea life. And, it didn't cost us anything!!!

Snorkling really great - one of the best of the island. Pelicans diving for fish fun to see - they dive pretty close to you.

Amazing place for snorkeling. One of the best places to watch fish in the whole island. It's situated right before Arashi beach. The rocks on the left part of the beach are full of fish. And you can see really big ones.
