Immediately north of Each Beach, which is the most popular on the island, is where Palm Beach begins.  This stretch of sand is very busy thanks to tourists staying in the high-rise district who spend their days sunning in the sand, and swimming and snorkeling in the water.  Watersurfing is also popular here, drawing in even more activity.

Beach Choices In The Area

Aruba's Palm Beach

A beach where snorkeling is an option is Eagle Beach. Eagle Beach is a wide expanse of pristine white sand that stretches along Aruba's coast for miles, hugging gentle waters with small waves. The beach is easily accessible and lined with hotels directly across the street.

Another good choice for snorkelers is Malmok Beach. The beach at Malmok is a narrow sandy stretch surrounded by beds of coral up on shore. The water is shallow and among the clearest in Aruba giving perfect swimming and snorkeling conditions.

Manchebo Beach: Located in front of several small hotels, Manchebo Beach is Aruba's largest beach and one of the island's only topless beaches. A wide stretch of white sand leads down to the choppy ocean and the area is peaceful and tranquil.
