Rent chairs/palapa on beach

I will be in Aruba on April 10th...my birthday and wanted to either purchase a day pass at a resort or find a nice set of chairs/palapa on the beach. I noticed at the Hyatt, it looks like the beach is very small, other pics of Eagle beach show a very wide beach.

Can anyone give me some guidance? I'm willing to pay for a chair/umbrella or whatever is necessary. Just looking for the best day possible. Thanks!

You may want to go to cruisecritic.com and visit the Aruba forum, where this topic is often discussed at great length:


Just note you will be there during a very busy time, and the resorts that sell day passes don't always do so if they are too busy.

The beach is public, you can go with a towel and sit anywhere. It is shade and a chair, that is the problem. So is you can find a tree with shade, have fun.

Low season usually starts around the week after Easter. All depends on what day Easter lands on - this year Easter is April 8th but it can land anywhere from late March to late April.

Take a cab to Arashi Beach. The have nice chairs for $5 per day and the beach is amazing. Tripadvisor just rated the best beaches in the world last week and this beach was rated #2 in the world as part of Palm / Eagle Beach.


Bring plenty of sun screen and enjoy!
