Introducing Palm Beach, Aruba

Unwind on the soft sugar-white sands of this idyllic 2km-long beach fringed by towering coconut and date palms and lined with a choice of luxurious 5-star high rise hotels.

Rated by travel magazines such as Condé Nast Traveller as one of the world’s best beaches, Palm Beach offers all the ingredients you need for the perfect Caribbean honeymoon or romantic getaway.

Facilities include sun loungers and palapas, with food and drink amenities just a short stroll away at one of the many open-air bars. Water sports include diving, snorkelling, parasailing, kite surfing, windsurfing, jet skis and Hobie cats.

Relax on the white sand, go swimming in the warm turquoise sea or sip a cocktail and people-watch.

Palm Beach is generally busier and noisier than Aruba's other beaches. For less crowded areas, walk south to the Divi Aruba Phoenix Resort or north towards the Marriott Resort and nearby Hadicurari Beach (or Fishermen's Huts).

Palm Beach is located on the northwest coast, around 8km north of Oranjestad.
