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.
Palm Beach is the head honcho of Aruba resorts. Sandwiched between Eagle Beach and Malmok Beach on the west side of the island, this place cashes in on its classic-Caribbean stretch. And sure enough, the high-rise hotels have gravitated towards it. They top up the sands with a good mix of restaurants, beach bars and casinos.
