...sail around the island...
Palm Beach is not the home of Aruba's official port of entry, however, that shouldn't discourage avid sailors from making their way to the island aboard their own private or chartered water craft. The trip to Oranjestad'scan be just one stop along your way, and once you've gained legal entry from Immigration and Customs you can either sail around the island or drive to Palm Beach.
The great thing about sailing to Aruba is that all of their entry forms are available on-line, so you can print and fill out everything you'll need to gain entry before you even leave on your trip. When you arrive, dock at the Reina Beatrix International Airport (for a fee of between $10 and $20(USD) an hour) and head straight to Immigration. You'll need to present your passport and previously printed paperwork. Once the Immigration papers have been stamped, you'll go to Customs, present them with your stamped Immigration papers, plus the customs papers you've previously filled out, plus a list of the ship's stores and documentation from your previous port of call.
