One of the best things about living in Aruba is that I can go snorkeling when I feel like it. I just grab my snorkeling gear and head out to one of my favorite snorkeling spots in Aruba…
During all my years of underwater exploring I’ve found some really beautiful places to snorkel in Aruba.
Some beaches are known for snorkeling between locals and tourist. And other beaches are hidden gems among snorkeling spots in Aruba.
I want to show you 6 (of many other) snorkeling spots in this blog post…
6 Snorkeling Spots in Aruba You Should Visit
How the idea of writing about beaches that are good snorkeling spots in Aruba came about…
I was contacted by the digital content specialist from Aruba Tourism Authority (who is now a good friend of mine) and we came up with the idea to write about some of the most beautiful beaches that are good snorkeling spots in Aruba.
Aruba is small, but the amounts places to snorkel doesn’t disappoint…
The island has more than 6 beaches, so of course the list is incomplete (until I create the ultimate guide for the best snorkeling spots in Aruba).
So to make things easy for you, I chose to snorkel at 6 of the closest beaches to the hotel area (so you can easily find them). The beach in the number 6 spot is the only one that is far from the hotel area, but worth the trip!
My journey started early in the morning as I made my way near the hotel area. You should always come prepared when snorkeling, so I made a quick stop at a Chinese store where I bought bottled waters, snacks to munch on, ice to put in the cooler and a few cold beers for later in the afternoon…
After a short drive I reached my first stop – the beach (Arashi) near the California lighthouse.
Before 3 o’clock in the afternoon I was snorkeling by the last beach on this list.
I wrote about this snorkeling trip that was featured on Aruba Tourism Authority’s blog (and made and awesome short shore snorkeling video.
