“Cool, Relaxing & Pleasant Bar/Restaurant on the beach”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Located right next to Barefoot Restaurant. Between the airport & Downtown.

Cool place for drinks & appetizers; or for dinner. A small pool w/a wet bar. Nice music playing in the background. Pleasant & friendly staff! Nice large portion of the appetizer plate we ordered for 2! They rent beach chairs and canopies.

Nice location to watch the sunset as well.

“Beach Bar with Friendly, Personable atmosphere on the calmest water in Aruba”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Located in between the Airport and Oranjestad, just after the roundabout at Surfside Beach and across from Talk of the Town. It is right next to the Barefoot Beach. Although it currently doesn't look like much from the street, when you get on the beach side it is one of the nicest places in Aruba to get a drink and have something to eat while enjoying the beach(they also have a small pool with a wet bar). The ocean here seems to never have any waves. It is the first sign of life that you see as you land at Queen Beatrix International Airport should you be sitting on the port side of the plane.

The have a full bar and can make any drink you want including frozen drinks. The beer selection allows for all the local beers and some American beers but let's not forget you are not in the USA so it should be Polar or Balashi. The bartenders are quite knowledgeable so ask for whatever you want. If they don't have what you want and it is available locally they will get it for you.

They do serve appetizers/tappas and full meals. I only had the appetizers which were all excellent, calamari, cheese sticks, fries, and chicken wings. All the food came out hot. The chicken wings are really excellent and if you like them spicy ask for the Mango sauce. a local favorite.This how good the chicken wings are, we were there on 5 different occasions and I ate chicken wings each time to the point that after the second time they magically appeared shortly after I arrived. Other people I spoke with while there both local and tourist said that the fish they had was excellent(I think it was Red Snapper).

Chairs, Cabana's, and Lounge's are available for rent on the beach. Anyone on the staff can help you with selection and location. Their hours of operation seem to be 0900-1900 seven days a week. Again, the staff is very friendly and genuine. This was the highlight of my trip to Aruba.
