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. Others remarked on the memorable sunsets and prevalence of Tiki bars.  

Palm Beach, also known as "High-Rise area," plays host to the imposing Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino and the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa & 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.
