Palm Beach Aruba

Just northwest of the capital city of Oranjestad, and central to the high-rise hotel district, is Palm Beach Aruba. This beach is high on the list of best attractions of Aruba with its powder white sand beach, crystal blue water, and palm trees as far as the eye can see. Really, why else did you decide to go to Aruba other than to see sights like this? Grab a cold drink, sunbathe or situate yourself under a palm tree for some shade, or take a dip in the sea.

More than conveniently located, Palm Beach Aruba runs alongside the high-rise resorts on the island where most visitors choose to stay. Due to the perfect water and sand on the beach, Palm Beach vacations can revolve completely around sunbathing and swimming easily, but this beach offers so much more. Whether you are staying in one of the resorts lining the beach or not, most of them open their doors and resources to the public — bars, restaurants, facilities, and rental equipment are in abundance because of this. Rental equipment, in particular, is popular for Palm Beach vacations. Windsurfing, water bikes, sailing, fishing, or snorkeling are all excellent at this location. If you are not sure how to do an activity, many of the resorts also offer instruction so if you are interested in trying a water sport, even for the first time, this is a great place to do it. Exploring the resorts themselves can also be a lot of fun. Much like Las Vegas hotels, resorts here go all out in their decor.

Palm Beach vacations are typically not for those who prefer a private, untouched beach. An abundance of hotels are in the area, and the focus of the attractions of Aruba is on the activities, people watching, shopping, and great resorts. Especially in the center portion of the beach, there may be crowds. Walking the entire beach takes about an hour and to the very north and very south is usually quieter and less crowded.

If you are not staying in the hotels lining the beach, this area is still very accessible. Public bus stops are near by and the bus is a cheap and efficient way to get here. The beach is also easy to get to by car, whether you are renting a car or taking a taxi.

Palm Beach Aruba travel plans usually include a little activity, whether that means walking on the beach at sunset, bar hopping, or taking part in some water sports. While the attractions of Aruba are many and varied — including casinos, a great nightlife scene, the Lourdes Grotto, or a round a golf — a visit to the picture-perfect beaches here is a must. If you have to choose one beach to visit (but please choose more!) Palm Beach Aruba is very possibly the all-around best of the beach on this island.
