Calmness of ocean mid Novemeber at Amsterdam manor beach

I am thinking about going in November, the week before Thanksgiving. I know this is the rainiest month in Aruba but my concern is whether the ocean will be calm for swimming. I am not able to tolerate wave action that could knock me down.

This is like predicting the weather....can't be done. But, in general, the waves (or lack of) are usually very quiet and gentle at Amsterdam Manor's beach. Calm enough to use a floatie.

I am with Amy! No way ANYONE can say.

We saw actual waves on Palm beach June 28. They were small, but waves nonetheless, on a stretch of beach which is normally calm. First time for us in 20 trips to Aruba. Thankfully it only lasted half a day and then settled down.
