Mangroves galore, some snorkeling

The mangrove trees are amazing. Sweet secluded spots to sneak in shallow water. Some snorkeling, although it's still quite windy and not the best visibility. Good for small kids.

This is one of those spots. Not a lot of tourists, a lot of locals. Beach is amazing, kid friendly and every wekend people are BBQ-ing and having fun. Amazing spot.

Easy access and shallow along the reef with a great variety of fish and coral. Wish we had gone a few more times.

Great snorkeling with Aruba Bob. I waited on the beach for my family to snorkel. Great pics and views. A must see. Has always had a reputation of not being a place to leave your belongings unattended but that's a good rule to follow on any beach.

snorkeling can be difficult at times due to current if you enter in the mangroves. cool rocks and fossils along the cliffs edge if you enter from the ladder or dock.

Great place to go if you've had enough sun for the day. The Mango trees provide plenty of area to stay in the shade & the snorkeling is good here too.

This beach is very safe and tourist does come to this area a lot. It is very nice and safe to snorkel. True, the white sand is not all along the beach but there are many stairs, some made of wood others made of cement, that takes you right into the beach. Sunset is spectacular and some mornings the water... More

Was expecting more mangroves to explore here. The beach is small and the area is rocky. It's pretty, but make the trip to Baby Beach, if you can. That one is special; gorgeous, swim and kid friendly.
