Spent the day at Arashi and it was sublime. Lounge chair rentals are 5$ and you get private huts to put them under. Enjoy a good book in the shade or swimming in the wavy water. Very nice quiet beach, there were even people surfing!

Arashi Beach is away from the hotel zone, and has more of a tropical island feel than some of the busier beaches. There are palapas, and lounge chairs can be rented for $5. The beach is uncrowded. My stepdaughter described it as one of the most beautiful she's ever seen, and she's visited tropical places and Turkey. We were there during some high winds so the waves were kicking, but the swimming was fun and the beach was gorgeous - palm trees, uncrowded, lighthouse nearby, beautiful sand. And if you head 1/4 mile or so south/east along the beach road you'll find some great snorkeling. Just look at where the tour boats are and walk on the road or drive over. (Walking the beach to get there is rocky and difficult.)

This beach is located down by the lighthouse. It has beautiful white powdery sand and crystal clear waters and a few palapas.. You can find good snorkeling right off this beach. This is in a very high end location of Aruba. Enjoy !

Lots of interesting marine life. I have never seen so many colorful fish in one place in the wild. Nice relaxing place about 5 min by car from my hotel.

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.
