Water sports are a particularly popular activity at Malmok, but if lounging in the sand is your thing, no worries. The atmosphere is relaxed and you can watch as sailboats and catamarans come in and out during the day to let snorkelers off in the shallow waters.

Located in Malmok, 0.6 miles west of Tierra Del Sol, Malmok Beach is on the North West coast of Aruba. You should think about stopping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. Found in a thriving district, Malmok Beach should definitely be considered by guests hoping to find a variety of enjoyable activities to take part in.

How to Access The Beach
Easily accessible by car (plenty of parking) and taxi. Public transport is also a nice option - the Malmok bus stop lets you off right at the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach at Malmok is a narrow sandy stretch surrounded by beds of coral up on shore. The water is shallow and among the clearest in Aruba giving perfect swimming and snorkeling conditions. Just off the shore is the famous Antilla Shipwreck - a sunken German WWII freighter. The turquoise waters are also usually pretty calm, making this a good spot for learning to windsurf, though pretty much any water sport you can think of is available here.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. Happily, the off-shore waters are of good snorkeling quality, so purchase or rent some gear if you want to do some underwater exploration.

Bear in mind that the region in which Malmok Beach is located is a bustling area, so factor that into your plans.
