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.
This high-rise, high-glamour resort on Aruba’s northwest coast dishes up the kind of swish offering you’d expect from a place like Vegas. Super-sized hotels, malls, casinos – they’re all here. But unlike Sin City, it’s got a white-sand beach that would make Robinson Crusoe green with envy. No wonder Palm Beach is the island’s top tourist destination.
