Gold Coast Aruba-What is it near?

I have the opportunity to get a townhouse for a week in February at Gold Coast Aruba for a very good price. Having never been to Aruba before, I do not know anything about the area. So I am looking for some expertise.

1. What beach is it near?

2. Is it near activity?

My husband and I like hanging out at local bars/pubs and really enjoying the local atmosphere. I do not want to travel to Aruba to experience the US. Advice on where to go and what to do is appreciated?

1. Re: Gold Coast Aruba-What is it near?

Well, Gold Coast is located on the northwest end of the island. It is close to the small Arashi Beach. It is near a golf course called Tierra del Sol. There are some local places in the area if you go inland, away from the beach. However, I would say it is much closer to the Palm Beach area which is lined with big hotels of all the international names, Marriott, Hyatt, etc.

If you're interested in local flavor, you would have to take a drive of about 20+ minutes. You'll find many local places on my blog, bentpage.net, just go to the Aruba Local Flavor section on the right side and go back through the posts. Also video directions on how to get to many of those places.

Enjoy your visit.
