    Palm Beach Grocery store

    Are there any new grocery stores in the the Palm Beach section of Aruba?

    Somewhere to buy a case of bottled water.

    Thank you

    Kong Fui is not too far away - just down Palm Beach Rd.

    Forgive me for asking but....why do you need a case of bottled water when the tap water in Aruba is so good to drink? We usually buy a couple of bottles and just refill them from the tap and store in the frig to keep cold.

    Hi and Welcome to the Forum. Others can most likely provide more details regarding your options for grocery stores in the Palm Beach area. I just wanted to give you my opinion about purchasing bottled water in Aruba. Personally I only buy one or two bottles one after I get through security in Boston and maybe one once I get to the Island. I then refill (and freeze as needed) those two water bottles for my whole two week vacation. One of the first things we do when we arrive is fill up a pitcher (or whatever is handy) and put it in the refrigerator so we always have cold water to drink.

    The thing to keep in mind is that Aruba has one of the best desalinization plants in the Caribbean that in turns makes their tap water some of the best/cleanest you will ever have.

    By all means buy a case of water if you really want to but I wanted to make sure that you know that you have nothing to worry about when it comes to Aruba tap water. Whatever you decide to do, I hope you have a wonderful trip.

    we do the same thing. buy two bottles of water once we go through airport security and then fill them up all week in aruba from the tap.

    Bottled Water

    Aruba has the most delicious water. Nothing to worry about! I second the motion. Just keep filling up your two bottles of water.

    agree Aruba has wonderful thirst quenching water!

    reusing plastic water bottles is really apparently not a good thing.
    and i reuse sometimes.
    and i do have a nice nalgene water bottle i think it is nalgene, got it at LLBEAN.

    Aruban drinking water is safe to drink and delicious. As a matter of fact, it tastes a lot better than the well water we have at home.

    Aruban drinking water is desalinated at a plant on the island and 'flavored' with minerals drawn from coral. There are none of the health issues with water you might experience in other countries.

    Bottled water? Why? Perhaps bottles for water, yes . . . but no need to buy bottled water - welcome to Aruba, safe, clean, friendly . . . and yes, drink that delicious water!
