ARUBA – The editors at tripadvisor.com recently released their Travelers’ Choice 2012 Top Beach Destinations in the Caribbean, which include beaches in Aruba, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Cuba.
“It’s no surprise to me that a beach in Aruba was rated among the top beach destinations for 2012,” said Matthew Smillie, owner of Aruba Villa Vacation Homes, a company that offers vacation rentals in Aruba. “We have many wonderful beaches on our island that offer something for everyone.”
For the second year in a row, Palm/Eagle Beach in Aruba was rated number two on the list of top beaches. Eagle Beach is an idyllic Caribbean beach, boasting white powder sand, beautiful turquoise water and is the ideal destination for sports enthusiasts. On the east side of the island is Palm Beach, which is often referred to as the best family-friendly beach in the world. This beach is perfect for water enthusiasts, as it features the wreck of the torpedoed tanker Pedernales, a popular diving destination.
“Aruba is only 20 miles long and with these beaches so close to one another, travelers who are staying in a beach villa can explore what each beach has to offer by bike or mo-ped,” said the accommodation expert. “No matter what you are looking to do, these beaches feature restaurants, bars, watersports and tranquil sunsets.”
The main difference between Palm and Eagle beach are the crowds, the Aruba villas provider said. Eagle beach is considered the low-rise area, as most resorts are no more than five stories high. Eagle beach is often less crowded and offers more parking, which makes it a wonderful place for honeymooners or a nice picnic. Palm Beach on the other hand is full of high-rise resorts, which is why it is so attractive for families, as there are so many activities available.
“We have many properties available on these beaches, so we often find people staying on Palm Beach one year with their family and then returning alone to Eagle Beach the next time they visit,” said the Aruba Golf Vacation expert, Smillie. “There is a reason these beaches are among the top rated and the only way to uncover their true beauty is to visit them for yourself.”
