They are building restrooms but it may be a while. The beach it self is very nice and the surf is not too rough. Good place to spend a few hours but take it easy on the food and drinks till they get the facilities done.

Beautiful beach but you'll need transportation to get there and your own snorkeling equiptment. But it appears that they are putting in restrooms and maybe rentals!

Stayed at Marriott Ocean club. My wife and I got on the local bus for $2.30 per person within 5 minutes were at Arashi Beach. Being use to waves at the New Jersey shore, Arashi had nice waves. The beach at the Marriott didn't have any waves. The beach is very nice, we noticed that it was being used mostly... More

Only average rating as there are no bathroom facilities - but they are building something, so perhaps they're coming? Is on the bus route from the high rise hotels, so easy to get to. Great swimming, soft sand. We went on a weekday so it was not crowded at all. The snorkeling tour boats stop at Malmok beach which very... More

We sampled other beaches like baby beach and eagle beach but you couldn't beat Arashi for snorkeling from shore and overall peace and quiet. It's got aquamarine water and a view of the California lighthouse. Get there early if you want to snag some shade under a thatched hut. It's windy so beach umbrellas are difficult to secure. And, like... More

PERFECT FOR US! As our house was right there. It's been windy so far, but the beach is breathtaking.

This was a nice little beach which we visited several tmes a week during our month stay. We arrived each time by 8 AM so that we could be assured of getting a palapa. The beach was nice but the walk in involved a drop which I didn't like. The water was also nice. There was some snorkeling to be... More

Beautiful beach, no issues leaving our stuff in the sand while we explored the water. Snorkeling was a bust as the water was murky. It's rained everyday since we got here, so perhaps it's just a seasonal issue. The area shows great promise. Hint, bring a bottle of water to rinse your feet off with prior to getting in your...

We went to Aruba for our honeymoon. We explored most of the beaches on the island and Arashi was by far our favorite on the island and remains one of our favorites in the entire carribbean. We spent most of our trip here. The water is beautiful and generally calm, decent snorkeling right off shore, and not too crowded with... More
