Arashi Beach

Arashi Beach is known for its calm waters and abundant sea life. This makes it one of the most popular snorkeling destinations in Aruba. Just offshore, colorful corals await, especially on the border of Arashi Beach and neighboring Malmok Beach. It is there that a big rock outcropping can be found. Part of the outcropping is plainly visible from the surface, and the submerged rocks around it are an ideal base for coral. The coral, in turn, attract fish. As far as location is concerned, Arashi Beach and its inviting white sand can be found on the edge of a residential area on Aruba’s northwest coast. A nearby landmark is the California Lighthouse, which was named for a steamship that wrecked off the coast in 1891. To get to Arashi Beach, you can drive, take a taxi, or hop on a bus in Oranjestad. Buses depart every hour from the Oranjestad central station.
