This beach is very nice but quite small. There is parking if you can find any. Just be prepared for a crowd. There is also a small restaurant on the premises

Great beach with no sea weed. The water was very clean and not too crowded. There is a food stand and bathroom facilities as well as parking.

Probably the cleanest least crowded beach on Aruba when we were here. Palm beach is crazy, Eagle beach is a bit less so, but it seems like most of us tourists have not found Arashi or can’t be bothered to leave the hotel zone.

Nice sandy beach for families. Snorkeling is better at the beach next to it called Boca Catalina. Water is calm and chairs, umbrellas and snorkel equipment for rent. A snack bar at one end.

Very good beach! Calm place with good parking and a good spot for snorkeling. I recommend to go there. It´s beside the lighthouse so you can visit it before going to the beach in the same day.

I loved this beach! Plenty of parking and straw umbrella things for shade. This was the perfect spot to enjoy a quieter afternoon reading and lounging.

Honestly, this was the softest beach I have ever been too. Parking was easy which is always a bonus. There was some kind of beach hut on the property where you could get drinks. Food maybe but I forgot to pay attention to that.

Nowadays at Arashi beach a young guy has a hut selling refreshment and some light bites. He has expanded the hut somewhat now as business is doing well. They even have some snorkeling device for rent. This beach in the past used to be very...More

No lockers but it's pretty low key and safe. We put our items under one of the cabana type areas and never had a problem. Not a super touristy area, so usually plenty of spots to spread out. We rented lounge chairs, I think... More

Baby Beach would likely be too far; may want to try Eagle Beach as an alternative.
