Boca Catalina, Noord

4.7
#5 of 16 in Beaches in Aruba
Beach Nature / Park
Have a rest and a swim at Boca Catalina, a secluded bay with a white sand beach. Popular with local families and tourists alike, the beach enjoys a reputation for pleasant swimming and snorkeling. With a combination of clear and calm waters, you'll feel like you're in a swimming pool. A great variety of colorful fish live just offshore, including yellow boxfish, cowfish, triggers, and angelfish. Bring water shoes if planning to snorkel, as the bottom gets quite rocky in places. Work out when and for how long to visit Boca Catalina and other Noord attractions using our handy Noord trip generator.

  • Travelers if they want to go snorkelling without hiring a tour, come to this beach, which happens to be one of the stops of the snorkel tourt; It is small and without Beach, because there is sand with stone in a short extension, but in the water they can appreciate the beauty that has to offer. There are no food or drink. Super recommended.
