“Walk to and through, not just a ride by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Catch the beach now before another subdevelopment goes up between Arashi the almost natural Aruba and the Lighthouse above it. Walk up from the High Rise area or, if that's too far, take a bus to Malmok and walk the loop to the beach, the dunes area and back to the bus. Beautiful, less crowded. Not great swimming unless you're strong and sea-wise with more surf here than Palm Beach, but great walking and views. Bring water if you're walking or running.

“Beautiful Wild Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Perfect for getting away from the crowds. No services beyond chair rental but great swimming, palapas, lush cactus and a lovely view of the California Lighthouse. After trying for over 40 years, my sweetie finally learned to swim here so there is definitely something magical in the air.

“Love this beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The best beech in Aruba. You need to bring your own chairs unless you want to rent them for 10 dollars. Very beautiful.There are huts to sit under but you will be in the water your whole visit.

“private and secluded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

be creative if you want to experience small and private beaches, it can get crowded fast if everybody goes for the same spot, but go early makes it work. We even met famous Dutch Tv hostes with her family.
