    Druif Beach - Public Access

    Hello all,

    I am aware of the parking lots along Eagle Beach, Arashi Beach, Baby Beach, and Rodgers Beach. My question is, can one park somewhere NEAR Druif Beach and have public access to the beach there, without walking on a resort property?

    Is the only "proper" option to get a day pass at one of the resorts for Druif?

    You could park at the Alhambra casino and walk or there are a few spots here and there along the roadside around the Divi, specifically look by the south end of the Divi resort.

    The Divi and Tamarijn do not offer day passes, but instead "coupons" for drinks and meals. It is very expensive. Imo, you are much better off bringing your own snacks and a collapsible cooler for drinks.

    Smile In Between Divi and Tam

    ArubaLisa,

    Thanks for the response, I noticed on the map that there was a neutral area of beach in between the Divi and the Tam (underneath the golf course).

    Is this the area you are speaking of? The Road seems to hug the beach here, with no buildings in between the highway and the water.

    Also,
    I think I am confused about something, which makes this whole thread a bigger deal than it is.

    Are all the beaches public land? In other words, if I enter in between resorts, can I be on any part of the beach itself....

    OR:

    Is the beach in front of the resort, on the resort's land?

    All beaches are PUBLIC.
    One is allowed to enter the beach in between the resort buildings.
    Everyone is allowed on any part of the Public beaches.
    The individual resorts own the "furniture" on the beaches for their customers.

    Last time we were at Druif beach (in december) we parked right along side the road parallel parking. Sometimes there are no spaces there and we park at Divi or Tamarijn or Dutch and then just walk thru the resort property to gain beach access.
