Nice public beach, chair rentals available along with a place to purchase food. Great spot to snorkel.

We took the bus fo $2.40 each way to Boca Catalina where all of the high priced tours bring people to snorkel. rented our own snorkel gear from one of the beach huts near our hotel fro $25 for 2 sets of equiptment and had a great experience with out spending $150. We qar enot great swimmers and felt sefe with life jackets. So many people there and the Catamarans were all dropping off snorkellers at the same spot.

What a wonderful beach! Easy to get to by public bus (walk 1/8 mile from Malmuk Beach stop for more frequent bus stops!) - beach is wonderful - shade trees and tatched umbrellas. There are people renting beach chairs ($5/day) and snorkel equipment (somewhat old/tired looking) - even an ice cream truck that stops for treats and cold drinks. Just no restrooms so be prepared!
The snorkeling is terrific - lots of different fish, reefs; even saw a small octupus! Perfect day - we stayed for 5 hours and would have stayed longer except "nature called"!.

The water at Boca Catalina is CLEAN and CLEAR and just perfect for swimming and relaxing! When visiting Aruba please visit Boca Catalina and Malmok area! Locals enjoy Boca Catalina a lot! I went many times to Boca Catalina and enjoy it a lot.
