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

Blah snorkeling, but a nice place to swim

There really isn't a reef here, just bits and pieces of tan coral -- nothing in the way of color. Best snorkeling along the rocks by the shore. Quite a variety of fish, but you... read more

There really isn't a reef here, just bits and pieces of tan coral -- nothing in the way of color. Best snorkeling along the rocks by the shore. Quite a variety of fish, but you can see it all in 15 minutes.

Great dive location. Saw lots of different fish including file fish, green morays, trunkfish and a couple turtles.

Malmok Reef is gorgeous. I rode horses here and tied off and snorkeled for a couple hours. It was simply fabulous and so relaxing. The water is so clear and the fish are beautiful.

This beach is less crowded than others closer to the high rises. Snorkeling is abundant with mostly smaller fish closer into the shore then of course it gets better further from the shoreline. We did observe that most of the coral is dead, but still a great time, wish we would have seen a turtle! Nice place to relax, listen... More

Great snorkeling! Bring bread or granola, the fish will swarm you. We did the Depalm catamaran twice and it was great both times

The BEST spot for snorkeling! I really don't want to tell you that because it's nice to have it all to oneself. Great corals, great fishes. Could spend hours out there and it's shallow enough to feel comfortable and safe, although I did get to see a manta ray! That was awesome! Please leave nature alone - don't pick up... More

We took the four hour sail/snorkel trip with Red Sail and it included a fantastic lunch, great snorkeling, a ship wreck snorkel and an open bar.

I liked this better than Baby Beach and much closer to the high rise area. We liked it so much we went twice during our stay.

Malmok Reef, just off the Malmok beach is a another great place to snorkel. All three locations are side by side and easily seen all in one day with a short walk and a great snorkel. We spent many hours in the water and saw all we wanted except turtles. This is one of those locations if you are an... More

I've snorkelled a lot of reefs around the world and this one has fish and starfish and the like - so plenty to see - just that for me it wasn't teaming with variety of species and coral. Visibility is perfect though!
