Palm Beach is Aruba’s answer to Las Vegas. Only there’s a beautiful, white sand beach and a laid back atmosphere thrown in to the mix too. This popular resort is full of glitz and glam, luxury resorts, huge shopping centres and casinos where you can flutter the night away. It’s paradise, just with a bit of a kick and if you’re looking for lively entertainment with a family vibe, Palm Beach is ideal for your Aruba holiday.

Things to Do

If you can tear yourself away from the beach, go and spend some money in Aruba’s biggest shopping centre, Palm Beach Plaza. This multi-level entertainment centre includes designer shops and dining options but if the kids need entertaining, there’s also a bowling alley, climbing wall and a cinema in Palm Beach Plaza too! If you want to venture out of Palm Beach, Oranjestad, Aruba’s capital is only 15 minutes away for some Caribbean culture!


Catch some sun on the 2 mile long beach, sleep in the shade under a tropical thatched umbrella or snorkel in the blue Caribbean sea. Life’s a beach in Aruba and there’s no better place to relax than on the white sands of this Caribbean resort. Young families will especially love that the sand gently slopes into the sea which makes it perfect for new swimmers but the more adventurous can windsurf and jet ski out on the ocean!

Food and Drink

From Fish Gumbo to Pudin di Coco, you’ll no doubt want to try some of Palm Beach’s local food. Sample the fish fillets and shrimp and have the popular coconut, rum and lime pudding for desert to have a taste of the Caribbean. Most restaurants do have European style menus though if you fancy pizza one night and no holiday would be complete without have a cocktail or two in a bar down Je Irasquin Boulevard!
