Located near Aruba's northwestern tip, just past the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, Hadicurari Beach's strong winds beckon to windsurfers and kiteboarders. You'll know you're at the right place when you see beach shacks dotting a pebbly coastline; the beach here is nicknamed "Fisherman's Huts" for that very reason.

The area's shallow, iridescent water is also good for snorkeling, which a lot of visitors recommend. Even if you don't want to try your hand at windsurfing, reviewers say this is a great spot to watch others take on the winds. Because of it shallow waters, Hadicurari is also a hit with parents traveling with their children. A note of caution: The sand here is not as soft as Palm Beach; it's littered with broken coral and shells, so wear appropriate footwear.

Like all of Aruba's beaches, Hadicurari is free to visit all the time, but it's an especially popular beach in late June or early July during the Aruba Hi-Winds kitesurfing and windsurfing tournament. The beach is accessible via Arubus, if you don't have your own set of wheels.
