Aruba has fantastic windsurfing due to consistently strong trade winds, and this beach located in the southeast of the island is one of the top places for this popular sport.

Good snorkel site even when it is windy. Sheltered from big waves. Sandy entry to water. You need to climb some steep steps and a few rocks to get down to the beach. Site would be appropriate for beginner snorkelers. There is adequate parking and...More

Rating is based upon the diving. Beach is just so so. Easy entry was a plus. Good reef. They all sort of look similar after many dives but worth it maybe at the end of your dive week or if you are staying close by.

There are covered cement tables in the parking area of the entrance to this beach. A yellow stone was there with the words Bachelor's Beach painted on it. You must take the 7 stairs down to the water and snorkel from there. I didn't see...More

Not too far from the capital. Easy to get to by bicycle or car, but not much of a beach. A mostly stoney and rugged area. Good for snorkelling though.
