    "Stays tight all night"

    I don't even know what that means.

    I guess they are recommending it for all night head protection, even while sleeping

    You have some great responses above. Make sure to reapply that sunscreen even though you don't think you need it! That sun can be brutal!

    You can get some good doo rags at the Harley/Davidson stores here. I don't know if the one in Aruba carries them.

    Thanks for the great responses everyone!

    One big thing thats been on my mind is how to protect my personal belongings while on the beach. Initially I was going to lock them in the trunk of my car, but I'm learning that's a bad idea. The most I'll be carrying with me is a bag that'll have my phone, extra batteries, a credit card (i'll leave the rest at the hotel), keys, and some small things like an extra shirt or lotion....

    Should I just keep an eye out for it while in the water and hope for the best?

    hi
    check out this thread for locking up your stuff

    Locking up Valuables at Beach, Pool or Hotel?

    ( i got my kiss bag, and sent it back as it is very flimsy/lightweight/very easily cutable chain) will stick with out pac safe instead.

    The sun in Aruba will be brutally hot.

    If you decide to really take your phone and extra batteries to the beach, make sure you can store it in the shade. Maybe look for a palapa where you can secure your belongings in a save bag and tie it to the palapa.

    Instead of taking a credit card to the beach, I would opt to take some cash. Don't know how much of a hassle it would be to replace a stolen credit card. JMO.

    What you will need most on the beach is sun lotion, a hat, sunglasses, maybe an extra t-shirt, possible a beach towel and some water. And your car keys.

    If you leave valuables back at your hotel (phone, camera, credit cards, passport, cash ect), I would store it in your safe.
