Well we decided to try the snorkeling here thinking it may be good, but actually it was horrible. It’s shallow and rocky and didn’t see much. If you haven’t seen Mangroves before it is a pretty area against the turquoise water, but other than a...More

This beautiful beach is one of the best views in all of Aruba. It offers many entry points at high tide and low tide. You will be missing out if you don't visit this beach.

The beach here is amazing! Sometimes there is strong waves, but when we went out the ocean was a bit more calm. Very nice place to snorkel or just relax in the water. There are a few palapas.

A bit of s swim but great dive! Nice reef going from 20'-80'. Lots of life. Better than the wreck dives in my opinion.

Beautiful spot for snorkeling. You can do advanced snorkeling, basic snorkeling or even shore diving here. The mangroves are beautiful and provide a unique view under the water. We saw a seahorse- which we were told is very rare. Eels, barracuda and many other fish...More

Easy to get to just south of the airport and across the bridge. This is a shallow cove that many families spend time at. My daughter did a shore dive from this beach and I snorkeled and watched. There is a blue hole to the...More

I had high hopes for this beach. The Spanish lagoon was written up in the Costco magazine for snorkeling so we were primed and ready. Having said that the Spanish lagoon isn’t well published so who knows. We got there around 11. As mentioned in...More

Swim out of the cut in the reef and go left but be aware of the current so you have enough time and energy to swim back.
