Arashi beach is a nice quiet beach towards the north side of the island. We have done some great snorkling off of that beach and some of the best shelling collecting for the kids. The entry slopes a little but not too much. Worth a stop for an hour or two to enjoy the water and the snorkleing.

A good place to find shells. Not sure about the amenities. Took a cab from the Occidental for $12 and caught the bus (only comes by hourly) back.

This a premier beach on the island. Rated as one of the best if not No. 1. It isn't big, like Palm or Eagle Beach, but it is beautiful. Island government has made this a top spot and is just finishing construction on bathrooms, etc. It has a paved parking lot and huts for shade on the beach. The sea... More

a lot less crowded than many. there is a declining ledge to get to the water so could be difficult for some people to exit the water but it well worth the visit as the water is clear and lots to see including starfish and much sea life. there is chair rental, palapas, and they are working on bathrooms and...

I visited this beach last year and many things have changed so far, some food trailers are parked there now, some people have camping there, clothes hanging on trees... resuming the scene, much worst than a year ago.

My personal favorite beach, white sand, clear water, not too crowded, perfect in literally every way. Do yourself a favor and skip the crowds of Eagle Beach and take a ride over to Arashi. And grab some local food on your way back.

We loved the setting for this beach but the currents here were strong, since is located at the end side of the Island the sea currents are the strongest, not suitable for kids but nice for taking sun baths.

This beach is by far the best beach on Aruba. For $7 you can rent a chair and relax for the day. You can go really far out in the water and it's not deep. The beach has free parking and it's not ridiculously crowded.

Arashi Beach is located on the north side of the island, close to California Lighthouse. It's a perfect blend of white sandy beach and snorkeling... away from the busy busy hotel beaches. Kids will enjoy the shallow depth and snorkelers will enjoy the many sea life. For snorkelers, if you are facing WEST (your back to the lighthouse), swim LEFT... More

Pretty little beach with very few people in the evening. We watched sunset from this beach our first night on the island.
