“LOVE Palm Beach!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We are right in the middle of everything here! Lots of restaurants and activities - 15 minutes to the northern tip of the island, 1/2 hr from the airport, an hour from the southern tip! Very clean, very safe, plenty of shopping (woo hoo!) and lots of fine, fine views! We chose Palm Beach after doing an extensive tour of the island and looking at areas and amenities. Downside? Not much by the way of quiet public beaches - the coastline is pretty much dominated by the hotels and their multitudes. Go north towards the Lighthouse and you'll see some spots, tho.

“Awesome! Best beach ever!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

This beach is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.
The best parts of this beach are those far from the big resorts. Where you see no chairs, no tourists, but only local people, there is the real amazing place! The water is always so smooth, so wonderful... you just want to stay in it all day!
Also if you want to eat something, just along the main road you will find anything from restaurants, bars, to fast foods... There are also many souvenir shops.
The beach, like pretty much everything on the island, is easily accessible by car or bus.

“Party time!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This beach is where the big hotel complexes are located. As a result, the beach is busy and bustling and has a party atmosphere, unlike Eagle Beach which is quiet and largely open. A fun beach if you are staying there and if you want to party!

“beautiful blue gets deep quick”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

this is an awesome beach but not so good if u have young children or children who are small for their age. Two steps and the water was up to my waist. The next step placed me higher but a couple more steps and it was up to my shoulders. I was glad we didnt bring our grandkids on this trip. But it is an awesome beach for adults and i agree with others about the great water temperature. baby beach is on the other side of the island and much better for kids but the surroundings are not near as nice and convenient as palm beach. I loved aruba but i wouldnt take children.

“Where everything is happening”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

You will have a great time in the Palm Beach area at night. It seems as though the other areas of Aruba gets real quiet at night but the Palm Beach area is alive.
