    Aruba Beach Bars

    I saw this article today on Face Book on the best beach bars in Aruba. Most of us veterans have been to these but you know what, I actually never hung out at Moombas. Ive walked in a few times twice after the black pearl cruise to use the rest room and once after Nos Club Huis happy hours. All 3 times I had enough to drink before going there so didn't stay around but the waitress were nice to get me a cab and so was Mat the bartender.

    Sorry Andrea your best kept secret is out Reflexions made the list.

    Oh well here is the list for the newbies..

    Any of you that have read a single trip report by me knows that MooMba is our hangout. We've made so many friends with locals, forum members and the staff there. We love the vibe and it's an easy walk to Surf Club or Holiday Inn where stay. As far as the insider tip goes, as soon as the staff knows we're on the island, they watch for us and we never have to wait for a drink.

    Sorry Nos Clubhuis didn't make the cut, sunsets there can be spectacular and also Pelican Nest. And what about Eagle Beach?

    Okay everyone, where is your favorite?

    We’ll have to give Moomba another look. The one time we stopped there it was late afternoon and it was deserted so we moved on. Since then we have heard many positive reviews.

    It’s a good list with a lot of nice spots. I was kind of surprised that Pega Pega didn’t make the list but then again I’m a little biased.

    I'm with you, Peg. But maybe for the best. Pega Pega can stay a hidden and peaceful gem! Hey, we need to start calling you Pega! :-)

    My favorite is Bugaloe.
    Moomba is fun too but we have only been there 2x in many years.
    A great spot that we loved was Jimmys at the Tamarijn.

    For those of you that read our trip reports, you know that we are usually at a beach bar for happy hour, so our choices might be a little different, as we they have to meet two qualifiers, on the beach or water view and have the beverages we drink. So for that, our list, in no particular order is.

    1. The new Beach Bar
    2. Mathew’s
    3. Pega Pega
    4. Peta Peta
    5. Ricardo’s, if you look around the corners.
    6. Faro Blanco
    7. Our cooler...sorry, slipped that one in there
