Great day today. We took the bus about 20 minutes north to Malmok Beach. It’s past all of the high-rise resorts, in more of a residential area. We saw some tourists, but mostly locals were on the beach with us. It was a nice change of pace.
There is a small patch of sand, surrounded by a lot of volcanic rock. There are also palapas for shade. Brady and his pink/red skin was super grateful for that. The water has a lot of rock and coral, perfect for snorkeling. We saw a spotted eel, tons of fish and my favorite – a turtle!
Best of all: the only thing our snorkeling trip cost us was bus fare – $4.60 round trip. Right after we finished snorkeling, two large catamarans parked and unloaded a ton of snorkelers. Apparently we picked a great spot, paid a lot less and got to see some great wildlife on our own schedule.
I forgot my camera cord, so can’t upload any of our pics, but here’s one of Malmok Beach that someone else took:
