About Malmok Beach

Malmok Beach is located just past the high-rise hotels on the north coast of Aruba. This beach lies just 3 kilometers north of the popular Palm Beach and it is approximately 700 meters long. Although this beach is not very frequently visited by regular beach enthusiasts who just want to spend a day sipping cocktails in the sun, it is a very popular spot where some of the best snorkeling in Aruba is within reach right off the beach. Unsurprisingly, many Aruba snorkel tour companies choose Malmok Beach every day to anchor their boats to water the snorkelers. It’s easy to enter the water yourself and just go solo and explore the area for tropical fishes. If you’d like to go snorkeling at Malmok Beach, it’s best to go early in the morning at around 10 AM as this snorkeling spot can become quite noisy once the tours start around 1 PM. You can enter the warm Caribbean waters by choosing one of two sandy beaches. You may want to bring some water shoes or flippers as the beaches are scattered with some rocks.
