This is our favorite place to snorkel. And, a little know fact, you can take the Arubus to and from this great area. A little hard to access in areas, but worth the effort.

Avoid paying big bucks for a snorkeling tour and just find your way to Malmok Reef. You'll see the paid snorkeling tour boats anchored here. If you have your own gear with you and catch a cab/bus or walk (like us), then you can get to a great spot for snorkeling. Catalina beach is a few minute walk away with... More

This is one of the best places for snorkel in the island, water is crystalline and blue. It's very easy to see the fishes, even if you're outside of the water. The place is nice even if you just want to stand or sit in the rock and look to the sea.

Malmok is a great place to snorkel from the beach. Please encourage proper snorkeling and protect the reef. The starfish and more are so wonderful.

We hit this site with quads and took plenty of pictures. I recommend seeing as much of the wild beaches as possible.

Drove up here from the Marriott a few mornings and experienced some real nice snorkeling. Many of the charter boats bring their people up here for one of the snorkeling spots. I wouldn't be happy if I knew I could have driven up here for free after paying $60 to snorkel.

We go here for great snorkeling and, if you go early in the morning, there is a good chance of finding turtles
