The Malmok shore, located on the northwest coast of the island, is a popular fishing spot among locals and visitors alike. The shore is easily accessible and provides a great opportunity to catch a variety of fish, including barracuda, snapper, tarpon, and jacks. The pier’s structure also creates a natural shelter, making it a perfect spot to fish during windy conditions.

For those looking for a more adventurous fishing experience, the rocky coastline near Arashi Beach offers some of the best shore fishing in the Caribbean. The area is known for its abundant marine life, including tarpon, snapper, and grouper. Visitors will need to bring their own gear and exercise caution when fishing from the rocks.

Aruba’s warm climate and clear waters provide excellent fishing opportunities all year-round. Fishing licenses are required to fish on the island, and visitors can obtain them from the local government or fishing shops. It’s also essential to follow local regulations and guidelines to ensure a sustainable fishing experience.

While yacht charter fishing excursions are a popular option in Aruba, there are also plenty of excellent shore fishing spots on the island. The Malmok Pier, and the rocky coastline near Arashi Beach are the best spots for shore fishing, providing opportunities to catch a variety of fish and avoiding the crowds and expense of a yacht excursion.

    It’s important to note that Parrot Fishes are protected species in Aruba and are important for the marine eco-system of the island. They are important grazers. Sometimes also known as ‘housekeepers’, the Parrot fish has the important task of keeping algae from overgrowing on reef-building corals.
