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...

This beach is our favorite. It's much less crowded than Palm Beach. It's close to the prime snorkel sites like Boca Catalina, so you can either swim from Arashi or walk to them. Snorkeling is also not too bad right near the beach. There are chairs and umbrellas for rent if you need them. There aren't watersports rentals/etc. there, and... More

This is in the far northeast side of the island, and is reasonably good for snorkeling as well as swimming. No facilities that I recall.

We enjoyed Arashi Beach as it was one of the less crowded beaches. We ended up at the very end of the beach toward the tip of the island and enjoyed the views. Be care of the sea urchins.We found 2 while walking along the shore. Nice place to relax on the beach.

Great beach without the crowds. There are a few huts, which you can get if you arrive early. Beach chairs are available for $7 each. Snorkeling is okay. Not extremely colorful, but I spotted a pretty cool flounder that was in the sand. I suggest you come down here if you are in the high rises.

this was the best beach for sitting and relaxing as well as snorkeling. There is easy parking, lots of covered areas to sit, chairs to rent, and really smooth white sand.

During our week in Aruba we visited many beaches. Arashi was among the best in terms of ease of travel (near our apartment) and quality of snorkeling with easy water access. The only site with superior snorkeling was Mangel Halto Beach, which was a bit of a drive for us (tho everything on the island is easily accessible). Helpful hints:... More

Take a cab or bus to Arashi beach. It is less expensive than snorkeling tours and is perfect for kids. They can swim around and it is quite shallow. You must bring your own equipment , but just goggles will do. Be aware there are no amenities, so no food, or bathroom. We go in the afternoon for about two... More

Nice sandy beach and you will enjoy swimming in the ocean. The water was a perfect temperature. Best snorkelling there as well. Needs washrooms, shower to rinse off and a snack bar
