This secluded beach is a perfect sunning and snorkeling spot in Aruba with calm, shallow waters surrounded by a rocky shoreline and mangroves. Here you will also find an Instagrammable swing and blue stairs a bit further on the rocks just across from Spaans Lagoen.

Sun bathers that like a quiet beach and their privacy tend to go to the beach in between the mangroves. The public beach huts and shaded areas are also perfect for a beach picnic or to watch Aruba's sunset. The area offers a sand beach, a wooden sun deck, and access through the mangroves for open water kayaking and SUP boarding.

Mangel Halto Beach also serves as an excellent shore diving site in Aruba. It is possible to walk out to the edge of the reef to behold such fish as parrot fish, yellowtail snapper, sergeant majors and blue tangs as well as deep water gorgonians, sponges and anemones. The reef plunges to depths of 110’ where octopi, morays and barracuda abound.
