Palm Beach

One of the main hubs for cheerful tourist life, surrounded by resorts and full of things to do, this beach is likely the one you saw in the ads for vacations in Aruba. Swim in the calm, sparkling blue water, take long walks along the fine sand of the shoreline, and seize the occasion to do some people-watching. Be aware that the beach can get crowded.

Eagle Beach

Another much-loved tourist spot, Eagle Beach is located walking distance from the low-rise hotel area, and it's quieter and usually less crowded than Palm Beach.

Its waters are clean and good for swimming, and the local fauna is beautiful, featuring gorgeous tropical fish and sea turtles.

Passport / Visa

Citizens of the European Union member-states, the majority of countries in the Americas and Europe, as well as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and a handful of others do not require a visa for stays of up to 90 days. Visitors of other nationalities might need to apply for a visa in advance. The visa for Aruba is not an equivalent to a Schengen Visa, and does not allow holders to enter the European part of the Netherlands. Visitors will need to provide a passport that is valid for the duration of the stay and has some unused pages. They also need to have a valid Embarkation and Disembarkation card (ED-Card), a valid return ticket, and the necessary documents for returning to the country of origin. Finally, they can be requested to demonstrate that they have arranged for accommodation in Aruba, and that they have the financial means to support themselves while staying there.

Best Time to Visit

The weather in Aruba is always nice, with an average temperature of around 28°C at all times of the year. Budget-wise, the best time to visit Aruba is from April to December, during the low season. During the rest of the year, prices increase significantly as more tourists come down from the north to escape winter. The perceived temperature is a bit hotter in September, when trade winds cease.

Queen Beatrix International Airport

The recently renovated Aruba Queen Beatrix International Airport is located in the western part of the island, 5 km from the downtown area and 7/10 km from the resorts area. It is served by a number of daily or weekly flights from North and South America, the EU, United Kingdom, and many others. The airport tax ("PFC", Passenger Facility Charge) is usually included in the price of the flights, but it's worth checking. Check-in for flights to the US is 3 hours before departure; check-in for other flights can be 2-3 hours before departure according to your airline. If your flight is going to depart during a peak hour (Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm), arrive earlier. There are many different ways to get to and from the airport. Aruba's public bus service, Arubus, has several lines stopping at the airport. You can take any of these to Oranjestad, reach the town's bus station and change to another line to reach your hotel (many are served by line 10).

Aruba is mostly well-known for its beautiful touristic beaches. Eagle Beach, one of the best, is quite close to the ship terminal, and boasts flamingos, cute turtles, typical divi divi trees and plenty of facilities. For a morning of perfect beach life, take the Arubus line 10 from the Oranjestad bus terminal and get off at the Eagle Beach stop. For a change from cruise ship food, have lunch with the delicious ethnic cuisine at Así Es Mi Peru (, a few steps away from the beach. If you're still in the mood for touristic beaches in the afternoon, visit the very popular Palm Beach (bus line 10 to Malmok, stop at Palm Beach Plaza). To take a break before getting there, spend an hour at the colorful Butterfly Farm (same bus, stop at Divi Resort). If you're looking for a more adventurous day, save the afternoon for a tour in the wilder Eastern part of the island. A convenient solution is booking a half-day guided tour: the Aruba ATV Tour, operated by Kini-Kini Tours (, will show you some of Aruba's most beloved natural wonders. The highlight is swimming in the breathtaking Natural Pool, just in front of the ocean, with colorful fish under the surface. The tour departs directly from the cruise ship terminal and brings you back there at the end of the trip. However you decide to experience the island, take some time to explore the picturesque Oranjestad city center. It only takes 15 minutes on foot from the terminal to Oranjestad's cute main street, Caya G.F. Beltico Croes. Here you can admire colorful Dutch revival architecture and typical palm trees; this is also where you'll find some of the best shops on the island. Another good shopping and entertainment hub is the whimsical Royal Plaza mall, just a 5 minutes walk from the cruise ship terminal.

Public Transport

Public transport in Aruba is easy and inexpensive. The Arubus service covers Oranjestad and the resort areas, with stops at beaches and supermarkets; it also reaches the airport.
