Top 15 things to do in San Nicolas

1. Baby Beach

Baby Beach provides a blissful setting suitable for kids, as well as inexperienced snorkelers and swimmers. Within a calm lagoon, the shallow waters and gentle waves allow you to wade out far from shore and still touch the bottom. A number of snack kiosks and rustic huts complete the authentic Aruban setting. This makes a good alternative to the busier beaches near popular hotels, and several outfits offer snorkeling gear and beach beds for rent.

5. Mangel Halto Beach, Savaneta

Known locally for excellent snorkeling, Mangel Halto Beach supports diverse marine life both inside the bay and in the coral's outer reaches. Snow white sands and beach huts face southeast, and a leafy network of mangroves hem in the bay that leads to the reef. More experienced snorkelers can head to the outer reef where octopuses, morays, and barracudas reside. On dry land, enjoy the many secluded corners of the beach and bring chairs or a towel to bask in the sun.

6. Rodgers Beach

Relax at Rodgers Beach, a tranquil and secluded beach known for its calm waters and pristine white sand. Despite being a small, public area, the beach doesn't get as many frequenters as other nearby spots, so take a book along and enjoy the privacy. Beginner swimmers will feel at ease in the lengthy shallows; more active swimmers need to go a fair distance before reaching deeper levels. Watch your toes, as crabs frequent these waters.
