Easy parking, palapas. A bit crowded and can be noisy on weekends with road noise and radios. Beach bar and toilets. All beaches on this side of Aruba are still beautiful, with turquoise water. Second parking area may be a bit quieter.

Good place to go for swimming and some snorkeling but getting in and out of the water can be challenging. They have a snack bar, rental equipment, and palaces.

It was windy the day we went here. The taxi driver brought us here saying it was the best place to snorkel. I didn't have fins/flippers. I couldn't fight the waves. They'd knock me down and then pull me out. My friend tried to snorkel with fins/flippers and he got out farther but was pushed back in by the waves.... More

We spent the day here whilst in port on a cruise ship. You can catch the local bus at the bus station 2 blocks in front of the cruise ship dock. It costs US$5 for a return trip or US$10 for an all day pass. This is basically the final stop at the turn-around near the Lighthouse. There is shade... More

Arashi Beach is at the edge of the island and away from Palm beach tourists, meaning you need a car or taxi to reach there. While there was no beach-side bars when we visited, it is truly worth a trip. The water is so beautiful, unlike sandy-mixed palm beach water. Its parking spots are limited, so I recommend going there... More

Three cruise ships overloaded this small beach. Limited facilities. Only one place to get drinks. Not much in way of snorkeling rentals and they were also out of equipment. Were out of limited chairs and umbrellas as we got there at noon or so. Appears to be only spot on island for shore snorkeling and we ended up dropping anchor... More

We started our southward snorkeling trek from here,although this area isnt the greatest for that (surfs alittle ruff)the beach is a great spot to hang out for the day. Away from the hustle an bustle,crowds on other beaches,has a small bar,basic food,beach was clean,very nice area. We didn't experience it but id guess a good sunset spot,picnic dinner for two....

We loved this Beach!!! Beautiful water color and snorkeling. Not good for older people. We took an older couple that are on the heavier side. The struggles getting in and out of the water due to a pretty good drop off. They did not go back. We went back several times for the snorkeling. This beach is a Perfect location... More
