Aruba beach excursions for 2 yo to 72 yo?

Recommended Posts

With a 2yo and 4yo, I’m having trouble making time to research as much as I usually would. Any suggestions for beaches? Need to factor in kid-friendly and senior-friendly - neither of my parents gets around well these days. Best case scenario would be nice Beach with facilities, lounge chairs, shade, decent snorkeling, and a quick trip from the ship to get back for nap time.


We’ve been to Aruba multiple times before and nothing from my memory jumps out, but were focused on diving/snorkeling since that was before kids. Hope some of you can help, even if there is no perfect option (snorkeling is typically not good at popular beaches). Thanks! 🙏 


p.s Planning to cross-post for Bonaire, Curaçao, and St. Maarten - the other 3 ports on our Freedom of the Seas cruise next month.

All the beaches are public...and they aren't extremely wide, so getting TO the beach isn't difficult.  Palm Beach and Eagle beach are probably where you'd want to be with kids....Palm is calmer than Eagle .....chair/umbrella rentals are avail.
