Aruba Highlights

Aruba, One Happy Island


Aruba is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Long, white stretches of sand, crystal clear aquamarine water, palm trees, and a steady sea breeze to keep you cool…the beaches in Aruba are fabulous!

In Aruba, each beach offers a slightly different experience. Some are good for snorkeling, some are secluded and (almost) private, and some are filled with tons of things to do. If you are looking for that perfect beach in Aruba, check out our list below.

So, rent your car, grab your favorite swimsuit and snorkel gear, and start exploring!

Since the island sits well outside the hurricane belt, there's very little threat of tropical storms.


Aruba Highlights


Palm Beach

Palm Beach is where most of the action is in Aruba. This is where most of the resorts call home. So this is also going to be one of the busiest, most crowded beaches on the island.

The beach is wide and filled with cabanas and lounge chairs that sit in the shade of tall palm trees. The water is calm and perfect for water sports, like paddle boarding, banana boat rides, and flyboarding. On shore, small cafes and restaurants can be found in abundance. For families, this is the perfect beach.


Eagle Beach

Some people say that Eagle Beach is the most beautiful beach on the island. The Travel Channel rates Eagle Beach as one of the prettiest beaches in the Caribbean. In 2017, Trip Advisor rated Eagle Beach as the third best beach in the world!

Eagle Beach is located just south of Palm Beach. This beach is very wide and less crowded than Palm Beach. Get here early, grab a cabana, and spend a day here, gazing out at this beautiful spot in Aruba.


Arashi Beach

If you are looking to get away from the crowds and the water sports, head north to Arashi Beach. This is located just a short distance from the main resort area, so it is easy to get to if you have a car.

This is another gorgeous spot in Aruba. Few people, awesome views, and a great snorkeling spot are what makes this beach special. The beach is a little bit rockier than Palm or Eagle Beach, but that is what makes it a better destination for snorkeling.


Malmok Beach & Boca Catalina Cove

This is one of the best places to go snorkeling in Aruba. Much of the coastline here is rocky and reef-like, making this is an excellent spot to go snorkeling.

There is a small beach to access the water. Spend however long your heart desires, swimming in this small, protected cove, searching for Angelfish, Blue Tangs, Butterflyfish, and more.


Hadicurari Beach

For kitesurfers and windsurfers, Hadicurari Beach is your destination. The wind is strong here, perfect for these sports. There are rental facilities on the beach and you can take lessons if you are a first-timer.

Even if you don’t want to go kitesurfing, this beach is worth a quick visit. It’s awesome watching people who really know how to kitesurf. Plus, the views up and down the coastline are phenomenal!


Baby Beach 

Baby Beach officially known as Klein Lagoen is a shallow, sheltered man-made lagoon located near Mangle Cora in Seroe Colorado, on the southeast end of the island of Aruba. It is frequented by locals and tourists. It is named Baby Beach as the water is so calm it is safe for very small children. Because of the calm water, snorkeling at this beach is safe for children and others new to snorkeling.


California Lighthouse 

One of Aruba's most famous landmarks, the California lighthouse is known for its spectacular views of the island. It's now open to the public to climb up to the highest look out point and enjoy panoramic 360 views of Aruba's most northern point


Seroe Colorado Anchor (in Memory of all Seamen)

The Seroe Colorado Anchor is located in the southeastern part of the island. Through the years, the anchor has become one of the more popular points of interest in Aruba, where many tourists go to explore the surroundings and take some memorable pictures. When visiting the anchor you’ll notice how large it is and you’ll start to wonder how the Seroe Colorado Anchor found its resting place at this particular location. The anchor is approximately 10 feet 6 inches wide and 15 feet 6 inches tall. On the anchor, you will find three numbers. 4112 refers to the horizontal parts of the anchor and 4115 refers to the vertical parts. The third number, 21772K, tells you something about its weight in kilograms. There’s a concrete pad around the anchor and it has been painted in red. It was manufactured sometime in the 1960’s by a German company.
