The stunning Andicuri Beach stretches some 70 meters along Aruba’s eastern coast and is known for its turquoise blue waters and limestone cliffs that offer sun-kissed travelers a bit of shade.
Although the beach attracts travelers from across the globe in search of a truly tropical experience, strong currents and serious waves make Andicuri less than ideal for swimming and snorkeling. But these conditions do make it the perfect destination for more adventurous travelers who want to try their hand at kitesurfing, body boarding or surfing.
Accessing this secluded beach can be tough, so visitors should be prepared to hike in on foot, or navigate the terrain with a vehicle designed specifically for off-road travel. And while the going may be tough, those who do make it to Andicuri say its beauty is unmatched and its shores are almost always quiet.
Andicuri Beach can be difficult to locate, since it’s known for being one of Aruba’s most secluded stretches of shore. It is located about 20 minutes from Oranjestad by car.
