|About these ratings|
Some vacationers like their water for swimming, not sporting. If this is you, ditch the "Low-Rise area" at Eagle Beach and try the more tranquil turquoise waters along Palm Beach, located just above Eagle on Aruba's western coast. You'll have fewer jet-skis and wake boarders to avoid as you stroke or wade in Caribbean Sea.
Palm Beach is also known as "High-Rise area" and plays host to the imposing Marriott Aruba Resort & Stellaris Casino, the Radisson Aruba Resort & Casino, and the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort & Casino, among others. Even so, Palm Beach is open to the public at any time of day, and many of the hotels will allow you to change in their lobby bathrooms, or purchase refreshments at their concession stands or beach bars.
