Palm Beach Tours

222 reviews
Aruba’s Palm Beach hosts many of the Caribbean island’s luxe high-rise hotels, which is no surprise, as these lovely two miles (3.2 kilometers) of sand are prime real estate. The beach hosts sunbathing vacationers, refreshment stands, and water sports booths. Two piers lined with restaurants and shops offer entertainment and some much needed shade.  
 
The Basics
Northwest of Aruba’s capital, Oranjestad, Palm Beach is a hub for activities day and night. The long stretch of sand leaves plenty of room for relaxing, and the blue Caribbean waters are calm enough for snorkeling and swimming just offshore. Parasailing, scuba diving, and horseback riding are other popular daytime activities.
 
Aruba tours that circle the island often include a stop at Palm Beach, as well as other island highlights. There are also guided expeditions via bus, Jeep, ATV, or party bus. Boat tours and Aruba catamaran sails pass Palm Beach for views and photo ops before proceeding to a sunset viewing location, the famous Natural Pool, or the Antilla shipwreck scuttled just off Arashi Beach. A typical Aruba sightseeing tour stops at Palm Beach in combination with other landmarks such as Arikok National Park, Baby Beach, Eagle Beach, the California Lighthouse, or the Natural Bridge. 
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Palm Beach is one of the more crowded beaches on Aruba. If you’re after peace and quiet, a farther-flung beach (such as Arashi Beach or Malmok Beach) may be more your speed.
  • Palm Beach is chock full of amenities, which makes it great for families with kids who frequently need snacks, activities, or bathroom breaks.
  • Many Aruba island activities leave from the Palm Beach area, making it a great jumping-off point for those who aren’t content to just lounge on the beach all day.
 
How to Get There
Palm Beach is located about six miles (9.8 kilometers) northwest of Oranjestad and the Queen Beatrix International Airport. As Palm Beach is a busy area, parking is not easy. The Arubus has several stops along Palm Beach on J.E. Irausquin Boulevard.
 
When to Get There
Since Palm Beach is lined with high-rise hotels featuring clubs and restaurants, the nighttime activities are almost as plentiful as those for daytime. Aruba sees great weather almost year-round. Prices are highest in winter for northerners escaping the snow, so April through August is the best time to find a deal. 
 
Off-Road Tours
Palm Beach is a popular starting point for off-road and ATV tours that explore Aruba’s interior. Choose from self-drive or guide-driven off-road adventures that get you off the beaten path for a view of the real, natural Aruba—far from the high-rise hotels.
