This is a great change of pace to the busy beaches at Palm Beach. The mangrove waters are pristine and there are plenty of fish to see. Make sure to stop for a beer at the little bar near the parking area. You will need...More
Beach tucked in along mangrove trees. Appropriate for swimming and snorkeling. Beautiful part of the island. Caution stay to the left as the current can be strong requiring excellent swimming skills. Must see.
Mangel Halto was an absolute treat. We snorkeled within the bay (sectioned off by a buoy where boats dock) and the water depth was at the most 4.5 feet, but usually stayed at around 3 feet. When we went the water was pretty calm, EXTRAORDINARILY...More
We arrived here and as we were headed to the platform for snorkeling 3 dogs came pretty close. A young lady called the dogs and they came to her and she took them down a small bridge into the mangroves next to the beach. We...More
Great beach to visit if you like to snorkel. There were tons of fish and squid!
There were a few huts to sit under for shade. Bring your own chairs and food/drinks. This is pretty secluded. There were a few other people there but not...More
Absolutely beautiful! Amazing for snorkeling, we saw squid and many other fish. The waters are so nice I absolutely loved how secluded this beach was too, it wasn’t packed with a bunch of people at all.

No. We have snorkeled there twice. The first time we walked in from the beach and snorkeled around the mangroves into the bay type area. The second time we went off the dock/deck and snorkeled out to the shipwreck. I am not a good swimmer. Average at best and it there were small swells. But I managed just fine and didn't notice the current much

My husband and I just returned from 6 nights in Aruba. We had a wonderful vacation and liked many things about the island, but the Easter Week camping really put a damper on it. I'll try and give a quick summary of some highlights and lowlights. Highlights: 1. The beaches are gorgeous. We stayed at MVC on Eagle Beach and on the earlier side of the week it was almost deserted. White sands, gorgeous turquoise water. No snorkeling off shore there at Eagle Beach like we were able to do in...More

Kini Kini Tours (4 Replies)
Has anyone taken the "Beach & Snorkeling " tour with Kini Kini? I came across the website today and it looks like a good alternative to renting a car to see the best beaches. They take you to Baby Beach, Mangel Halto, Boca Catalina, and Malmock beaches with lunch. I emailed them but they have not answered yet. I wanted to know what they use for transportation and how the lunch might be. Anyone have any experience with them? Thanks

We used them for a private ATV tour and were very pleased with the company and their service. We were able to customize the tour with stops that we wanted. They are a small "mom and pop" operation run by an Aruban and his American wife.
Driving directions to different beaches? (8 Replies)
We are going the first week of July and staying at Oceania Beachfront Condos on Eagle Beach. We will have our own rental car. I have the Maps.me App installed on my iPhone but I would love any advice on driving to the various beaches. Can you help provide driving directions? (assume starting point is always our condo) Arashi Malmok Boca Catalina Catalina Cove - next to Boca Catalina Mangel Halto Puerto Chiquito - near Mangel Halto

Naomi, I would ask for directions once you are in Aruba. It won't be hard to find these beaches.
