Locals’ favorite Arashi Beach achieved a top 20 Caribbean placement, celebrated for its enchanting snorkeling and abundant sea life. Showcasing a picturesque lunar landscape, Arashi Beach is the perfect locale for travelers to enjoy the gentle currents of the turquoise waters.
“Aruba is beloved for friendly locals, year-round sunshine, authentic culture inspired by 90+ on-island nationalities and adventurous activities across the island’s diverse terrain — but beautiful beaches continue to be among the most world-famous features of our One happy island,” said Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA).
