Beaches in Aruba

There are 40 beaches in Aruba for you to explore.  Each is beautiful and unique. Below you can see several famous beaches that we find very beautiful.

Eagle beach

Lined with coconut palms, sea grapes, and fofoti trees, Eagle Beach is one of the most stunning tourist beaches in Aruba. Thatched cottages line the soft white sand, and low-rise apartment buildings and restaurants sit across the street from the beach.

Water is beautiful. Clear emerald-colored shoals drop quickly into deep blue waters, but swimming is relatively calm and safe - even on windy days. Jet skis whizz by at the northern end of the beach, but you can find an increasingly quiet spot on the other end of the beach.

Baby Beach

About a 45-minute drive from the main tourist area of ?? Palm Beach, Baby Beach at the southern tip of the island is a beautiful crescent of white sand that surrounds a turquoise lagoon. The calm shallow waters make this a great option for families with young children - but be aware of the dangerous currents outside the lagoon.

Snorkelers will spot small fish such as blue kelp near the breakwater, which is a great place for kids to practice their snorkeling skills. Bright yellow sun tents line the shoreline during peak months, and there are plenty of palapas and funky thatched-roof snack bars by the beach.

Palm Beach

Just north of Eagle Beach and surrounded by high-rise hotels, Palm Beach is one of the most popular and most-visited beaches on the island. If you want to be at the heart of the action, this is where you stand.

There are many restaurants and souvenir stalls, as well as various water sports. This is one of the best places to go for a banana boat ride; water skiing; paragliding; or even a fly board where you can take off on the water with a jetpack on your feet.

Arashi beach

Just north of Boca Catalina, Arashi Beach is the last stretch of sand in front of the California Lighthouse. It has calm waters and crystal-clear waters that are great for swimming and offers some of the best shore snorkeling on the island.

Blue ponds, silver carp, and butterflyfish swim among the rocks and soft corals, and the sandy bottom in the center of the beach is a popular swimming area.
Palapas are limited to this shell-flecked sand, so if you plan to stay for a while, it's best to bring an umbrella for shade and maybe a picnic lunch, as the area lacks amenities.

Boca Catalina

Boca Catalina, just south of Arashi Beach to the California Lighthouse, is a popular snorkeling spot that graces most cruise itineraries.

The pebble sand here is small and not far from busy roads, but snorkelers will spot schools of tropical fish and colorful starfish just a few steps from shore. You may see tourist boats moored offshore.

The beach has no amenities other than a few palapas, so bring food and water if you plan to stay.
