Driving directions to different beaches?

We are going the first week of July and staying at Oceania Beachfront Condos on Eagle Beach. We will have our own rental car. I have the Maps.me App installed on my iPhone but I would love any advice on driving to the various beaches.

Can you help provide driving directions? (assume starting point is always our condo)

Naomi, I would ask for directions once you are in Aruba. It won't be hard to find these beaches.

Okay, thanks Curly! Do you think the waves will be too rough for snorkeling at these beaches? I’m taking my 9 year old daughter. She’s never snorkeled before but she’s a great swimmer.

Not familiar with the surf at Mangel Halto, although I read the current can be strong. But your daughter will LOVE Boca Catalina and there's no worries for you regarding surf or current.

Thanks everyone! Good to know that 4 of the beaches aren’t too far north. Also can’t wait to check out Boca Catalina!!

Manguel halto go past airport to bridge and make first right go in and bend left. Go down to mangroves and park. Walk across foot bridge for shallow sandy entrance. Far out and there is a current. The others are on road to lighthouse right next to each other. All should be fine for kids. Look for dark areas that's where rock and coral are. That's where the fish are.
