Have a great beach day amidst the white sand of Arashi, perfect for families to go snorkeling, swimming and sun-bathing.

A favorite with locals, Arashi Beach boasts gentle currents and abundant underwater life, making it a perfect spot for snorkeling in the Caribbean.

Arashi Beach is a white sand beach north of Malmok Beach, just off the road to the California Lighthouse, offering beach huts, a fun bar and large parking area. New features on this beach include showers, lounge chair rentals at occasionally live music at the bar. A fun beach for families!

Arashi is an excellent location for sun bathing and just relaxing on the beach, or watching Aruba's spectacular sunset. Due to a modest surf swimmers have easy access yet beginner body-boarders will have fun too. When entering the ocean on the left side of this beach you will reach an excellent snorkeling area with a rich underwater life.

Arashi Beach is well known as one of Aruba's best snorkeling spots, yet still remains relatively secluded. Its not the best in the world, but for the region it offers a high diversity and concentration of beautiful sea life.
