What’s Covered? Get to Know Aruba: Aruba’s biggest high-rise hotels are located along Palm Beach, which is one of the island’s best swimming beaches with calm water. You’ll have your choice of big resorts, restaurants, casinos and water sports here, but this is a busy place so don’t go here to escape from the crowds. Aruba’s so-called “low-rise” hotel area, Eagle Beach, is lined with smaller boutique resorts, but also, increasingly, timeshare resorts. Still, Eagle Beach is wider than Palm Beach, so it’s not as crowded, and it’s the island’s best big beach. Just south of Eagle Beach, Manchebo has rougher surf, but it’s rarely as crowded and has fewer resorts. The beach here flows directly into Druif Beach, which is dominated by the sprawling Divi resort complex. Oranjestad, Aruba’s capital, is a great place to go for shopping, restaurants, and nightlife or to make arrangements for a tour or other activity. Although there are few hotels here, including the beautiful Aruba, the city has no beachfront. Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor’s In Focus Aruba, 3rd Edition, but differs in some content. Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.
