During our week in Aruba staying right on Palm Beach we were struck by the dangerous currents and 5-10' waves. As a matter of fact the Tamarjin had lower level rooms flooded by the on rushing sea water to the point where they had to place 4X8 plywood sheets to protect their guests. All of the people we talked to... More

Carnival Cruise - January 2016. Travel Advisor recommended Palm Beach. Plus, it was recommended to ride the city bus to the beach instead of a taxi. We walked across the street from the pier and I bought 2 round trip bus tickets for $4.00 each. Got on the Route 10 bus and 12 minutes later got off at Palm Beach... More

My husband and I went to an all inclusive reset right on Palm Beach. This is our third time coming to exact location. It has become less attractive and poorer water clarity every year. The beaches in Aruba are very jammed with tourists , and all beaches are public so the resort has chairs on their site frontage but it's... More

I was in different sections of Palm Beach in December. I was in the RIU hotel section, the HYATT hotel section, the HOLIDAY INN section, the MARRIOTT, and I went as far as the RITZ hotel, after that as I walked towards the end of Palm beach, I saw kitesurf and windsurf - lessons were offered. The beach - plenty... More

The beach is usually so beautiful and calm. Lots of seaweed on the sand. There is a huge divot in the sand all along the edge making it very difficult to get out of the ocean without cutting yourself on the shells/ rocks. A cab driver explained to us that it was due to change in the wave pattern and... More

Nice white sandy beach. Great for swimming, paddle boarding and boat rides. Snorkeling, not so much. It was available but not a lot to see.

A beautiful beach but the 6 days we were there the ocean was super rough bringing in huge amounts of seaweed, etc. with each wave. Though a crew worked each day to rake up the mess and large scooper equipment made huge mounds of it down the beach, it was not suitable for swimming or snorkeling. A big disappointment!

Nice blue water to dip, swim, or float in and clean, sandy shores. Many hotels/timeshares are along this beach, so every bit of sand has chairs, umbrellas, or businesses. Good for a lazy day at the beach.
