We've been to Aruba many times. It is our favorite island. We were just on a cruise this past week that stopped in Aruba. We took the bus to the beach by the Surf Club where we usually stay What happened to the beach? When we went into the water we sank a few inches into the mucky bottom and the sand that was turned up stank. It was like swimming in a sewer. We were told it was from the storm. How much damage did they have? Will the beach ever be beautiful again? Are all the beaches like this? We spoke to someone else on the boat and he said he went to Palm Beach and the beach was fine. Is it just by the Marriott and Holiday Inn?
