“Lots of action with beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Palm Beach is a hub of activity as it occupied by many of the fancy high-rise hotels. You can find just about any type of water sport here, and the sand is like sugar. There are several great little beach bars and restaurants, too. It's perfect for recreational swimming and snorkeling.

“Nice but crowded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The water is nice and there are lots of water sport activities. It's not my cup of tea though. If you want less crowds rent a car and go to a beach away from the hotels.

“The best beach on Aruba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The Palm Beach area has changed over the year and for the better, but the beach remained the same, simply the best beach on the island. Hang out infront of the Raddision for the best in water sports and ammenities.

“This is where all the action is in Aruba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Make no mistake, Palm Beach is where you want to be when you are in Aruba. A wonderful beach. Lots of water activities of all kinds (with the exception of a submarine and of the nicely sheltered Baby Beach at the southern end of the island). Lots of shopping in the hotels and at the Palm Beach Plaza and Placeo Herencia, a wide range of restaurants, many of them very good indeed. Placeo Herencia's "dancing water" shows each evening (on the hour starting at 7:30) are fun and, even better, entirely free.

In the evening, in particular, this area absolutely rocks (including, if you want, a Hard Rock Cafe). And, yes, there are a number of casinos as well if that's of interest to you (it's not to me, though).
