We saw beautiful fish, including cuttlefish, eel and parrotfish close to shore. There was a little current, but it was not very strong.

Went here with Aruba Bob Snorkeling. You can walk in from the beach, boat not needed. We wore wetsuits which we were glad about after over an hour in the water.

This is a somewhat out of the way snorkeling location. Lots of fish. I could spend all day floating and watching the reef below. Much better than anything you see around Palm Beach.
