    Beach parking tips

    We wish to drive around and visit several beaches( Arashi, Boca Catalina, Rodgers just to name a few). In general how are the parking situations at the various beaches?

    Is there a charge to park, and is there ample parking- most particularly at the resort areas?

    My wife and I always go to the beaches in our rental. (Arashi, Boca, Malmok & Eagle)Parking is free and has never been an issue. We have only been to a few of the resort lots but have not paid to park. Not sure if they are all like that.

    Parking at these beachs are free and not a problem.

    Parking at Resorts is not a problem IF you are staying there.

    Never had a problem parking. Arashi's lot has never been full even during the busiest times I have seen it during December.

    Rembember not to leave any valuables in the vehicle, especially visable. Unfortunately, just like everywhere else in the world there are those that will break in and relieve you of the valuables.

    Smile Beach Parking

    Stinky2,

    I just got back from my first long stay on Aruba. One of the first things that amazed me was the ample parking EVERYWHERE. It sure feels like there is more parking per car than anyplace on earth.

    For example on Eagle Beach, there is a parking lot strip with paved spaces going down a huge portion of the beach. They are only 1/4 full most of the time. At Baby Beach, there is a huge oversized parking lot also.

    So I would say that when these posters say that parking is no problem, it is an understatement.

    I actually told my wife that next time, we can stay inland and drive to the beach. And I am a beachfront hotel kind of a guy. It is actually not necessary in Aruba! As long as you are not downtown by the cruise ship terminal, getting around and parking is a snap here.
