Went to Snorkel

The water was not real clear. I did see some fish, but nothing worth taking pictures of. It was not crowded and easy to get shade. The water was calm.

Not for snorkeling. Only for laid back beach relaxing. More for locals and those that want to get away from the HiRise area. You "Have" to share the cabanas as the beach belongs to all...so if you get invaded by others-too bad. either stay up in the resort area or except island life as it is. We love this beach... More

Since we have a rental our mission is to see as many beaches as we can this visit. Haven't seen any turtles or dolphins yet. A few dead boa's, and wild donkeys. Beach is very private, locals

If you want a more quiet experience than baby beach go here. Beautiful beach, the only "downside" is the view the refinery but who cares about that if you are sitting in Aruba on the beach :)

Although it's in view of the oil refineries and closer to them than Baby Beach, Rodgers Beach seemed less crowded. I still like the beaches on the west side of the island, but this one was nice.

Good Beach, my husband & I didn't spent the day here as in comparison to the other beaches on the island because this one was too crowed however with all the Beach options in Aruba I will not return because I love Baby beach which is around the corner any way when I am in San Nicolas.

The beach was empty for 4 hours while we were there. It's a beautiful beach that is very close to Baby Beach. Just ignore the ugly oil refinery close by. The ocean current was stronger than Baby Beach, but not nearly as bad as Eagle Beach or Arashi Beach. There are no facilities at this beach. We liked that it... More

I'm glad I took the time to visit this area, although it's a small beach you can get great pictures if that is your thing.

This is a great quiet beach, and not as busy as Baby Beach nearby. There are a few "palapas" or shaded coverings available. There are no facilities or food/drinks, but Mama's Grill at Baby Beach is a short hop away for food and refreshments. The beach is clean and the water is blue. It is narrow but big enough and...
