By Viator, February 2018

4.5 103 Reviews | Add your review

Blessed with miles of powder-fine sand, calm crystalline waters, and a balmy offshore breeze, Aruba has some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. From mellow shores filled with families to popular spots packed with activities, here are our picks for top Aruba beaches. 

Baby Beach
A crescent of white sand along Aruba’s south coast, Baby Beach is aptly named, as its calm, shallow waters make it an ideal choice for families with young children. Visit as part of an Aruba sightseeing tour or off-road island tour, stopping at sights such as the Ayo Rock formation, the Natural Bridge, the Gold Mill Ruins, and the Natural Pool. 

Palm Beach
Lined with high-rise hotels, beach bars, and lavish Aruba resorts, Palm Beach is the first port of call for many holidaymakers. This is the place to enjoy water sports, with everything from banana boat rides and sunset cruises to wakeboarding, parasailing, and Flyboarding. Eagle Beach, another one of Aruba’s most popular beaches, lies just to the south.

De Palm Island
A 5-minute boat ride from the mainland, De Palm Island offers nonstop entertainment for all ages. Splash pools, water slides, and beach volleyball courts line the beaches, and activities include SNUBA and Sea Trek excursions, ziplining, snorkeling with blue parrotfish, and salsa lessons. 

Arashi Beach
Secluded white sands, abundant reef life, and the famous Antilla shipwreck—a sunken German WWII freighter—make Arashi Beach a top choice for Aruba divers. Set sail on a snorkel cruise or scuba diving excursion, walk the rocky shores of Boca Catalina, or visit the nearby California Lighthouse.
