What's within walking distance of the Bucuti?

Hey all!

We're staying at the Bucuti, and I was wondering what is within walking distance of the hotel? We love to walk. Any restaurants(I know Pizza Bob's and a doughnut shop are) for dinner? Grocery store? How far can you walk on the beach? Any info would be great!

We stayed just a couple resorts down from the Bucuti. There's the French Steakhouse next to you at the Manchebo, Dushi Bagels out in front of Aruba Beach Club/Casa del Mar(we frequented that place for breakfast & lunch-very good). The Costa Linda is next door with a restaurant, as well as the ABC & Casa del Mar.

I think all the resorts in the area have little convenience markets. We used Ling & Son's grocery store, it'd be a bit of a walk, but you could do it. Might be better off taking a bus there.

The beach is great for walking, can go miles.

There is also a Dunkin Donuts, Alhambra Shopping Bazar (a shopping plaza), the Alhambra Casino, along with the others mentioned...I would not recommend walking to the grocery store...it is probably a good mile from Bucati. Hop a bus or take a cab. And yes, you can walk for MILES on the beach, all the way up to the high-rise section. We actually walked all the way into Oranjestad, as well, mostly along the beach, until we came up on the fenced-off yard with containers...(you'll know what I'm talking about when you see it!)

The Casa Del Mar has the Calypso that serves a breakfast buffet as well as lunch and dinner. The Aruba Beach Club also has the Tortuga bar and grill. Also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Tortuga welcomes the Visit Aruba Plus Card for a discount off your meal. Both of these locations are on the beach with a great view of the ocean. the Bucuti has the Pirates Nest with dinning on the beach or on the pirate ship. Chalet Suisse as well as Le Dome are within walking distance but I would say a good long walk. Alhambra mall has some great shops, they do have a subway sandwich shop along with the dunkin donuts.

You can walk quite a ways up the beach past the bucuti and down the other way all the way past the Tamajrin and Divi. It makes for a great early morning walk or sunset stroll. walking all the way past the Costa Linda will

put you at Le Dome, Chalet Suisse and Mangos at the amsterdam manor. Amsterdam Manor also has dinning on the beach at passions. I believe you need to make reservations for this dinning and Aruba Amy can correct me on this, but I believe it is only on a couple night of the week.

Have a great time where ever you walk too!

Passion (restaurant on the beach at Amsterdam Manor) is now open for dinner every night except for Tuesday nights. :)

We walked both ways on the beach - down to the tamarijn and then the other way to Amsterdam Manor. It was a great walk both ways - wish I were there now! We stayed at the Manchebo.
