Druif Beach holidays are spot-on for sunning and sleeping. Plus, it’s a short sandy stroll to a load of spas, bars and restaurants.
Druif Beach joins the troupe of beach resorts on Aruba’s west coast. But it’s no chip off the old block. It’s given high-rise hotels the brush-off, so the sands are escorted by low-level, pastel properties instead. And the beach is one of the most deserted on the island. Picture Caribbean-pale sands and cling film-clear water.
So much sand
This place is loaded up with sand. And it’s a rare breed – although all of Aruba’s beaches are public, this one has a private, cocooned feel. It’s got downtime sussed, with a ban on motorised watersports and clusters of coconut-thatched umbrellas. The white-sand carpet rolls all the way to Eagle Beach. Here, it doubles in width and the restaurant and bar count’s boosted, too.
Things are super-chilled in this neck of the woods. A handful of hotels – mainly part of the swanky Divi Resorts group – look after the food, drinks and live entertainment side of things. Plus, you can whack a ball about on the nine-hole golf course. Or follow the sands around the bend to Eagle Beach, where you’ve got even more hotels, and wetlands that are great for bird-watching.
