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

I always enjoy Malmok Reef snorkeling when in Aruba. Have gone twice this year to far and maybe once more! You can snorkel up close to the rocky reef shore and see all kinds of wonderful fish, lobsters, octopus and coral. Is a relaxing slow pace snorkel and you can start at one end and just float along the coast... More

Really good spot for snorkeling and its a cab/bus ride away. Saw about 50 starfish just past the buoys. Lots of fish closer to shore. Take a few crackers and break in the water and the fish will swarm you. No food or drinks around so bring with you as well as a working phone or you'll have to watch... More

Some of the best snorkeling on the island! You can swim off the beach in many places and there's healthy reef in 12 feet of water. Beautiful starfish!

Lots of sea turtles and rays, just wish I had rented a camera. Current a little strong the day I went so be prepared to drift.

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
