General Impressions of Aruba beaches and Oranjestad

Aruba is one our favorite islands in the Caribbean. We start our day in the north, on Arashi Beach. This is a top location for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing. It is close to the California Lighthouse and easy to reach with public transport.

On our way back to the capital of Aruba, we stop at Palm Beach. This is the place to be for hotels, restaurants and water sports. Walking alongside the coast is fantastic. We love the colorful chairs and wooden constructions. You also see many lizards, birds, crab and pelicans.

The last stretch to Oranjestad we do in an open taxi bus. Here you find the cruise port and many shopping opportunities. Enjoy this beautiful city on Aruba.

Aruba is één van onze favoriete eilanden in the Caribische Zee. We beginnen in het noorden op Arashi Beach. Een top locatie voor het zwemmen, snorkelen en te ontspannen. Het ligt dicht bij het California Lighthouse en eenvoudig te bereiken met het openbaar vervoer.

Onderweg naar de hoofdstad van Aruba, stoppen we op Palm Beach. Dit is de badplaats met de meeste hotels, restaurants en watersporten. Langs de kustlijn lopen is fantastisch. We houden van die kleurrijke stoelen en houten constructies. Je ziet er vele leguanen, vogels, krabben en pelikanen. 

Het laatste stuk naar Oranjestad overbruggen we met een taxibus. Hier is de cruise port en vind je alle winkeltjes. Geniet van deze mooie stad op Aruba.

  1. The sand is so white, and the water so blue! I love all the colors, too! And splendid crab and pelican shots!! Seems they were not afraid of humans...

  2. Lovely and colourful with those wooden chairs. The beach has depth which is good as so many don't have great depth of sand.

  3. The colourful beach and water is attractive. Nice place for a holiday but probably with hundreds of other tourists.
