The center of all beach-going in Malmok is the beach of the same name, which features shallow clear water that is perfect for snorkeling.  Other beaches that line the area's shores range from powdery soft sands to those with a few pebbly areas thrown into the mix, and while none of them have bathrooms or changing facilities, there are generally thatched roof beach huts available to provide a little shade from the relentless sun.

One beach that's good for snorkeling is Arashi Beach. Arashi Beach is located north of Malmok Beach at the northwestern tip of Aruba and is easily accessible by car or taxi, with parking readily available. A 10-15 minute walk from the northernmost Malmok bus stop is also an option.

Another place worth considering is Hadicurari Beach. Hadicurari is home to the Hi-Winds World Challenge, a pro-am windsurfing competition. Windsurfing is the most popular sport in the area and visitors have ample opportunities to learn new skills or practice what they already know.

Palm Beach: Located in the center of Aruba's tourism industry, Palm Beach is comprised of a long stretch of sandy white beach sprinkled with palapas and palms for shade. Several high-rise hotels are found near this beach, as well as two piers.
