Get to Arashi on the local bus service which is very frequent. Arashi is out of town so you need to take shade and drinks with you - it is extremely hot in the midday sun in Aruba and you need to be careful not to get sunburned. Nice walk up around the north coast which becomes more and more... More

save, right off the beach, tons of various fish and you don't need a tour or a life jacket, flippers and the snorkel are fine. Free parking! Love that snorkeling area!

Beautiful beach. Very clean with nice tiki umbrellas to protect from the sun. Beautiful blue water and far enough from the road that no road noise was heard.

A quieter Aruban beach that the locals frequent. I am a beginner in snorkeling so found this beach quite rocky and wavy. The sand beneath in this beach is so rocky that my feet were hurting after some time. You also need to get here early to find shade or all the huts are taken. Bring your own chairs and... More

Clean beach with some palapas for shade. Water is shallow enough for kids, and there enough rocks for decent snorkelling. Be aware that there are no bathrooms, so pack some TP for the kids.

So Arashi is not quite as large as the other beaches, but if you have a few people (say, a couple or family) there are small inlets to the beach from the dirt path that leads away from the main road that you can park along and unpack within 10 steps of your car. The sand is soft and the... More

We are beginning snorkelers and hoped to find a nice area right from the beach. I was disappointed in the snorkeling, though I'm sure those with more experience find more. The sand was tougher on the feet in this area. We found a nice girl willing to share her palapa, but I wouldn't count on it unless you're there before... More

I love this beach. I thought the water here was clearer & cleaner. The beaches in Aruba does not seem to get too crowded, but it looks like this a favorite. I'm only giving 4 stars for now as we did not get to stay long to do some snorkeling. However, I will come back here next time.

Could have had better snorkeling if the winds had been calmer. We were disappointed as this beach has had better reviews. Just depends on the weather.
