Rent a chair for $5. Limited shade, so wear sun block.Snorkeling is fair. On the road from The Lighthouse. There is a small spot to buy pop. Much quieter than Palm Brach and eagle Beach.

Arashi is the perfect snorkeling spot. Always went to baby beach but now Arashi is our favorite spot. Have seen sea turtles, barracuda, sea snakes, all kinds of starfish, and schools of many different fish! If a little hesitant about going out a little deep, bring some bread with you, throw some out in about 4 feet of water and... More

Arashi Beach is absolutely pristine and gorgeous. The water is so clear there that you can see 15ft down perfectly.

Just north of the major hotels and excellent location for snorkeling. Snorkeling is easily accessible right from the beach.

Great for snorkeling and playing in the big waves when they come in. Lots of locals to talk with. Situated at the north end near the lighthouse. Short jeep ride from the strip. My son's favorite beach.

This was close to where we stayed and was for us the best beach because it wasn't crowded at all, parking was free and easy and the view of the lighthouse from the water was spectacular!

We were in Aruba for one day during a cruise. It was very easy to walk off the ship and catch a city bus (10A) along the coast to Arashi Beach. The bus station was just across the main road from the cruise port, and it cost $2.30 per person. There are plenty of stops and a few buses travel... More

Not crowded, plenty of room, and great place to take a dip, hang out in the water, and do a little bit of snorkeling!

If all you want to do is sit on the beach, probably could just sit at the beach at your hotel. If you want to snorkel, start here and head south along the coast.
