Palm Beach. Aruba’s interior is arid and rocky, peppered with scrub and cactus. But the west coast is graced with sandy shores that are the pride of area islands, and the most famous of these is Palm Beach. Strolling the high-rise-lined two-mile stretch is de rigueur on this tourist-friendly island and provides ample opportunities for people watching. A palpable carefree vibe encourages lazy afternoons spent napping on a float bobbing on gentle waves.
White powder sands as fa as the eye can see, and excellent swimming conditions in calm water. For changing and refreshments, you can use the public areas of the nearby hotels. Hotels also offer their own watersports center. Accessible by public bus, taxi or car.
