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.

Easy to get to by car, taxi, or bus. Palapas available if you get there early enough. Walk right in to the water for some great snorkeling! We saw plenty of catamaran excursions off the shore and we were in the same spot for free! You'll need to bring your own equipment unless you're on a paid excursion.

We had a rental car so we wanted to explore the island's best snorkel spots and this is in my top 3. TONS of sea life!! I saw and swam with multiple schools of squid, swam side by side with a barracuda on several trips to the beach. Also tons of parrot fish, eels, and puffer fish! I recommend to... More

Make sure to arrive early, the small beach and parking lot fill up quickly. Head out to where the catamarans are anchored they feed the fish, so the best viewing density is near them. Beach is very rocky, be careful of your bare feet.

So there is another review for Malmok REEF. In my opinion the REEF here outdoes the beach. The tour boats (Jolly Rogers, Blue Melody, Black Pearl and others) all have a stop in some part of the beach (usually the north side by Boca Catalina). You can experience the same snorkeling as them without the cost if the boat part... More

Not much beach area but great for snorkeling along the rocks. Lots of fish to see, the water is clear and it's fairly calm.

This is a wonderful area to snorkel, bring your own gear and snorkel right from the small beach area just below rock shelf. You can drive right up to this area and park your car safely. The fish love bagels!!!

A tour guide referred to Malmok as "Three Steps" due to the steps carved into the rock leading to a very small sandy cove below. Take a moment to look for them, it's the easiest way to access the water. Mostly this spot was nice for swimming up the shore and snorkeling on the rocks. I saw several types of... More

This beach is good snorkeling but Arashi Beach is the best. This is a good place for families or beginners.

We were on Arashi beach just north of Malmok. Did some swiming and snorkeling, but saw all the snorkeling tour boats on Malmok Beach. This was touted as one of the best snorkeling sites on the island. We walked to the rocky area between the two beaches before going into the water and snorkeling over to Malmok. We were among...
