  • Wonderful beach. Practically a swimming pool. Safe for kids with no waves. Water is a great temperature and tons of palms - hence palm beach I guess - to shade yourself. Nice to sit under a palm.....  more »
  • Stayed at Holiday Inn on Palm Beach. Very busy beach but really beautiful. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby within walking distance. Great area unless you are wanting a nice quiet and relaxing....  more »
  • Nice sandy beach. The south end is much better. The north end is dominated by huge hotels and most of the sand is taken up by hotel lounge chairs but not many people - definitely an older crowd there.
  • Palm Beach almost always makes the list of the top beaches on the planet. Soft soft sand! Azure blue water! No rip tides! What's not to like? Sunning, swimming, banana boating. The perfect Caribbean triology. Plus many of the best casual restaurants are beach side. You can get out of the sun and have an affordable, local seaside meal. The paddle boarding and wind surfing schools are at the southern end of the island. Walk the shore south to the school to watch the professionals and the newbies master this craft. Aruba is the wind surfing capital of the world and it happens here. The international wind surfing championships actually take place right here on Palm Beach in June. Wonder over. A big tent provides shade and a computer screen makes the location of each contestant during the various challenges. At night a local band plays to celebrate the contestants. On some Sundays the Aruba fire department and shore patrols practice water safety drills in front of Moomba. They race to rescue dolls. It's really interesting to watch the professionals at work (when someone isn't really drowning!) Sundays are also the day the locals come to sun. It's fun to strike up a conversation and learn how they live the island life. Find out when the cruise ships come in. Their shore excursions head to the best beaches, so they always show up at Palm Beach. (The days are typically Tuesday and Wednesday.) Palm Beach gets really crowded then.
