“A quiet and beautiful escape from the busy Palm/eagle beach area”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

Just a 5 min drive away from the Palm/Eagle beach area is Arashi beach.
It is low key and much more peaceful than the high rise/low rise beaches. There are a few palapas for you to share for shades. Beach chairs are also available for rentals but we were quite happy with our towels.

Bring your coolers and beverage of chiice and you'll be set for the day. No rental for beach activities which is perfect for us.

There is one divi divi tree which is he picture perfect of Aruba.

“Clear water, pretty fish, quiet beach”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

A 5 minute drive away from the highrise hotels, this beach is a nice alternative to the busy palm beach area. It's perfect for swimming and snorkeling (lots of little fish and coral if you go out far enough), but not really good for walking on the beach (although it's soft sand when you're in the water, it's pretty rocky and shelly at the shore).

If you get there before 10:00am you'll be able to snag one of the free palm umbrellas right on the beach. For 5 dollars, you can rent a beach chair. An ice cream truck even came by in the afternoon!

Plenty of free parking is a bonus, and the public bus came by pretty often.

“Nice beach for snorkeling.”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

This is probably the nicest beach near the hotel area for snorkeling. You have to bring your own chairs etc,because there are no facilities. There are a few palapas.There are rocks where the snorkeling is good. The other beaches in the hotel area are too clear with very few fish.

“Waste-Deep, Fun Waves”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Unlike the other more famous beaches in Aruba (Baby, Eagle, and Palm), Arashi had awesome waves that were very fun to play in. The water is only waste-deep, so still very safe, but the waves came often and were a welcome change from the stiller waters of other beaches.

Also, because of the shortness of the beach and the closeness of the parking lot, it's very easy to make this a fast trip. We left our stuff in the car, didn't bring a thing with us into the beach, and enjoyed ourselves for an hour, and then left. No mess, no fuss.

Take the trip - very fun.

“Great little beach on North End”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

This little beach has a fantastic view of California Light House. There are shade palm unberllas and plenty of room. Parking also ample for this beach. The water was rough on the day we went so we didn't get to snorkel, but watched many local kids boogie boarding and were quite good at it. My wife collected many shells. Visitors and locals were all friendly. A good beach to just relax.
