Try the local flavor of a hidden gem amongst the best beaches in Aruba: Rodger’s Beach, offering clear swimming water.

Rodger’s Beach is a narrow powdery white strip close to famous Baby Beach, yet has a more authentic feel to it as fishermen anchor their colorful boats here, protected by the calm waters of the bay.

During the week Rodger’s Beach is very quiet and perfect to read a book or indulge the crystal clear Caribbean; on weekends this Aruba beach is often populated by local families. If you want to stay away from the crowds you'll find on Palm Beach and Baby Beach, this is a great, quieter alternative.

Adjacent to Rodger’s Beach is a local dive shop offering snorkel and dive gear rentals, a shower and a restaurant. If you want to explore the fun, bars and underwater world of Baby Beach you will get there in a minute's drive.

Fun fact: Rodger's Beach was named after the British Captain Rodger, who opened Aruba's first oil refinery in San Nicolas, Aruba Lago Refinery in 1928. With captain Rodger at its helm, the refinery brought prosperity to Aruba. The refinery can be seen from Rodger's Beach.
