After watching numerous videos of beaches in Aruba, I was inspired to make a stop at Arashi Beach.  It was our last day of our 4 night trip to Aruba.  We had a waterfront lunch at Bugaloe Beach Bar and Grill on Eagle Beach.

Arashi Beach is a short drive from Eagle Beach.  The beach is beautiful with a cool bar that makes delicious frozen pina coladas.  The pina colada isn’t as good as those you’ll find on the island of Puerto Rico, but still quite refreshing under the scorching hot Aruba sun.

My visit to Arashi beach was short.  The waters were a bit rough for me as a non-swimmer and there was a sudden drop as soon as I stepped in the water.  I’m more comfortable with beaches with gradual drops.  I would honestly love this beach if I knew how to swim.


Arashi is an amazing beach with beautiful waters.  Grab a chair and relax under a tiki umbrella while sipping a frozen pina colada from Arashi Beach Shack. Don’t forget to bring your sun tan lotion because the sun is hot. My beautiful dark skin loves the sunlight and when the melanin starts popping, I feel it. Arashi Beach gave me life!
