    Smile Aruba in just over a week!

    Hi all. We are a family of 6 coming to Aruba on 01/08/11 and we can't wait. We are going to be staying at the Riu Palace on Palm beach. Could anyone tell me if there are shops within walking distance? I understand that there is the Palm beach plaza, but not sure if its walkable.

    Any other advice for first time visitors would be very welcome!

    Thanks in advance

    Tash.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    the riu is a very lovely property and it is dab smack in the hi rise palm beach area.
    both of the malls "palm beach" and "paseo herencia" are easily in walking distance. with little shops, restaurants, bars all along the way.

    the area is quite crowed with pedestrians/tourists.
    there are sidewalks and it is sometimes a slow walk as there is lots to look at along the way.....well a slow walk for me as i like to poke around. my best guess is that entire stretch is about 3/4 of a mile in length from the westin up to the holiday inn.

    here is a pretty cool interactive map, click link
    it is a very pleasant area to walk in the evening after dinner.

    please let us know how fun your trip was when you get back by writing "your aruba story"

    enjoy and safe travels.

    Many thanks for the reply. Now I know me and my daughter can indulge in a little retail therapy when we've soaked up enough sun! Hopefully we can bring back some local knick knacks, we always try to do that wherever we go and I feel its important to support local economies. Getting v excited now!

    There are lots of places to shop within easy walking distance.

    Aruba Meets all Your Shopping Needs

    Paseo Herencia, a shopping & entertainment centre, is a new “old style” plaza surrounded by shopping, dining and a state of the art movie theatre. There is also a main stage featuring a nightly waterworks extravaganza and musical performances against a backdrop of Aruban architectural designs which also showcase the island’s heritage. Shops at Paseo Herencia are open Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Sunday, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Shops include Hunkemöller a leading European fashion store, Baci de Roma an Italian women’s boutique and one of three Aruba Aloe stores located on Aruba. For more information please visit: www.paseoherencia.com

    Palm Beach Plaza just opened in January 2010! The Palm Beach Plaza is situated on 30,000 square meters of Aruba’s most prime property. Located just moments away from Aruba’s Palm Beach Hotels, the centre is a multi-level mall with approximately 15,000 square meters of fine shopping, dining and entertainment as well as a luxury condominium complex. A variety of businesses include a rock-climbing wall, 42 retail stores, a bowling alley, a movie theatre, a day spa, restaurants, a food court, ATMs machines, over 350 parking spaces, valet parking, a carwash, and 24 hour security. For more information please visit: www.palmbeachplaza.com

    South Beach Centre recently opened with several very popular restaurants and hang-outs including The Hard Rock Cafe, South Beach Lounge, Buster’s Garage, and Café Rembrandt, as well as boutiques offering resort wear, high fashions, chic jewelry, and much more.

    The Village, as its name implies, is a quaint shopping and dining village featuring Dutch-colonial style buildings housing original boutiques and popular restaurants. The Village’s Chinolatino restaurant and club promotes a wide variety of concerts and parties. During the year food and wine festivals are also held at The Village.
