How far is the beach?
The local beach at Savaneta is just 90 seconds by car, I say car as I pack it with chairs, beach towels, cool boxes and beach equipment. (All at the villa for your use) Easier than carrying it! To get there turn right out of the villa, (before the road bends right towards the main road) turn left onto the sand ( just past the houses with the blue roofs) you can access the beach there via a jetty, the beach is down the path to the right.
2. What is Savaneta beach like?
Savaneta Beach is a small local beach, it is sandy with a rock pool and jetty. It's great for seeing fish even in the shallow water. It is quiet and more often than not you will be the only ones there.
3. What other beaches are close by?
All along the coast road are beaches to explore, Manglo Halto, Santo largo and a new beach just the other side of the marine base, these are the closest ones, just minutes away, Baby Beach is a 15 min drive south and is beautiful!
4. Where is best for snorkelling?
Manglo halto is great for snorkelling, Aruba bob runs snorkelling trips there. Most beaches have lovely fish but another great place is de palm island. Here you can do a sea walk (in a divers helmet) and the fish there are amazing! They also have flamingos!
