|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 Beach on Aruba's western coast. You'll have fewer Jet Skis and wakeboarders to avoid as you wade in the Caribbean Sea. Recent travelers were impressed with the water's bright, clear blue color and the soft, white sand of the shoreline that varies by location. "As you walk from hotel to hotel on the beach you will notice differences in the softness in the sand and the breath of the beach. The best sand is at the mid-point," one TripAdvisor reviewer said.
Palm Beach, also known as "High-Rise area," plays host to the imposing Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, the Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa 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.
