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

Best spot to snorkle off the beach in Aruba. Swim out to the catamarans they feed the fish and attract large schools. water is calm but the area is very rocky so be careful. Best to use fins to cover the most reef area.

The reef of Malmok is longer than the beach. It starts shortly after the visible shipwreck and extends all the way nearly to Boca Catalina with little inlets every few hundred feet or so. The reef for the most part is very rocky, not a lot of beach spots to lay in the sand with limited access to the ocean... More

We always stop by at this place on the way to California lighthouse and wondering how come the water here is so different from any other place on the island. It's amazingly blue and clear and I don't think there is a better place for snorkeling on Aruba. The only thing there is no way to get out of the... More

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.
