Aruba – a Caribbean destination of ideal beauty and serenity. So calm and crystalline are these Caribbean waters that songs are written about them, and every year travelers the world over make the trek – however long it may be - to come laze at their shores. Miles of stark white sand, excellent snorkeling, and a balmy offshore breeze make Aruba a Caribbean destination for ultimate relaxation.

All of Aruba’s beaches are open and available to the public, so you have your run of the best beaches in Aruba. Baby Beach is probably the world-agreed-upon favorite beach of Aruba. Quiet and slow on weekdays, this beach turns into a local’s favorite on weekends, and makes for a perfect cruise stop. Calm, warm, and shallow waters means that it is perfect for babies (and adults), and so look for families flocking to its sandy seaside.

Palm Beach is the beach with all the high-rises on it, and if you’re staying at a resort in Aruba, you’ll likely find Palm Beach ready and eager to please. Roughly 2 miles long and popular with Aruba tourists and seaside beach vendors, think of Palm Beach as the one-stop-shop beach. Two piers are lined with restaurants and eager to serve hungry and thirsty patrons, while a bevy of watersport activity awaits.

Arashi Beach is the beach for the serious snorkeler and diver in the bunch. Secluded white sands, abundant reef life, and the sunken WWII freighter make this a preferred stop for Caribbean divers. Situated towards the northernmost point of Aruba, this is a great beach to visit if trekking to the nearby California Lighthouse, a popular Aruba icon.
