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.

I would definitely recommend going here to snorkel and if I... More

This is a small beach area you can drive to but is also where all of the snorkel charters seem to go. Save the cash, avoid the crowds and snorkel off the beach!

We had a blast snorkeling off the beach along the edge of the rocks. Make sure you go to the north side where there is a valley between two rock cliffs. So clear and so many fish...

This is a small and pleasant beach, easy to find off the main road that leads to the Lighthouse at the western end of the island. There are a few spaces for parking, and no restroom facilities. Right offshore is a great area to snorkel, easily accessible from shore. There are many varieties of colorful fish, in shallow water (about... More

There is a lot of rocks so the water is very clean to do snorkel, is nice if you take a bit of bread for the fish.

Of the 8 days we spent in Aruba, 5 of them involved snorkeling! We went all over the island and returned to Malmok 3x. The water was the clearest, the waves were gentle and there was a ton of specie diversity. There's a ton of reef here to explore - several hours worth so put on the spf80, you will... More

Heard Malmok had some little caves fish would go into so wanted to check it out. Lots of fish. Nothing very big. We did see a couple puffer fish and ones was at least 15". Wish he would've puffed up. Its $15 cab from low rise hotels and the same back obviously. Bring water and something to eat if you... More
