Aruba Beach Excursion Reviews

Spend your day relaxing on the picturesque shores of Aruba. Framed by palm trees and crystal-clear waters, these beaches are the definition of paradise.

There is a bus station just across the street from the pier. Walk there, purchase a round trip bus card to the beach of your choice, and you are all set! It cost us $2.60 each to get to Eagle Beach. The driver dropped us off there, where we were able rent chairs and umbrellas. We used the bathroom at the beach bar that was nearby and walked to a nice restaurant for lunch. The buses go by every 20 minutes, so it wasn't a long wait to hop back on and return to the ship at the end of our time. Read Less

As covered in my main review: The Aruba Public Beach Bus excursion was SORELY lacking. The beach was great, but HOW COME NOBODY TOLD US in advance that we would need TEN DOLLARS to rent a lawn chair? We ABSULOUTELY should have been told in advance, or better, include the lawn chair rental in the cost of the excursion (which, all tolled, was basically just the bus ride). Also, to use a bathroom/cold shower involved walking 100 yards and cost another dollar...give me a break! Read Less
