Known for ideal snorkeling and scuba diving, the water at this beach is so clear that even snorkelers can make out the 400-foot SS Antilla shipwreck from the surface.

Snorkeling at Malmok Beach

The best place to snorkel is at Malmok Beach. Just hug the wall and see all types of sea life. Easy access just north of the High Rise Hotels.

We ended a snorkeling trip in Malmok Beach, which was absolutely beautiful. I wish we could have spent more time there; it's definitely worth visiting.

Took the wife and spent the day snorkeling. Had a great time, wish we where still there. Can't wait to go back next year. The water was clear and the fish where great. Take the time and take a hold of the moments! You will not be disappointed.

One of the better spots for snorkeling on Aruba. It won't be for long if there aren't some safeguards put in place to prevent reckless and inexperienced tourists from standing up on the corral and breaking it. In the span of 10 mins, I personally witnessed 3 or more adults and children doing this when I was on a private... More

We snorkeled at several spots along Malmok Beach. The best spots are where you see the snorkeling cruises anchored close to the beach. Catalina Cove is one of the better spots to snorkel. We saw a wide variety of fish. There is free parking along the road and a small sandy beach with free grass-covered huts to sit under. There... More

This is the best beach for snorkeling. Bring your cooler, chairs, and snorkeling gear! Park your car and enjoy a non-commercialized beach. Make sure you have protective footwear as this beach has rocks. There are a lot of fry in this beach - different fish in one area. Snorkel to your heart's content. You will notice snorkeling trips bringing their... More

Great place to snorkel! Go on the weekdays when it isn't as busy. All of the snorkel sailboats make a point to stop here, but with a rental car it's only a few minutes down the road from the highrise resorts and 15 minutes from Oranjestad (without traffic). We visited a couple times on our trip. Worth it!

We always spend time snorkeling here at least twice during our 2 week stay. Fish are beautiful. Water is always very calm and you can see lots of large schools of beautiful fish.
