One of the northernmost beaches on the island, Arashi Beach is a somewhat secluded spot popular with serious divers and sunbathers alike. Arashi is also ideal for those looking to swim and snorkel due to its soft sandy bottom and generally calm surf. Many visitors choose to stop here on their way to the nearby California Lighthouse, located at the northwestern tip of Aruba.
To serious divers, Arashi Beach is known as the final resting spot of the WWII German freighter, Antilla. The ship has settled close to shore and is even visible above the surface at times. Another treasure found underwater here is elkhorn coral, which makes up a significant part of the reef and is a favorite of snorkelers.
