About Grapefield Beach

Just north of Boca Grandi you will find Grapefield Beach, a rare combination of cliffs to your left and beautiful beach on your right. Grapefield Beach is a quiet beach that is about 600 meters long. Looking to the north the beach further continues for about a kilometer to Rincon Bay where the beach ends. Grapefield Beach is a beach not a lot of people go to, so you can make it almost your private beach when visiting. Swimming or snorkeling is not recommended because the tide, currents and trade winds are typical and always present at the east side of Aruba. At the beach you will find some wooden shacks that the surfers still use when spending a day here. In the past you could find a lot of sea grape plants here and people used to come here to pick the fruits for eating. Nowadays the plant has almost vanished but there is still a good chance you could find some and look for the grapes to enjoy them yourself! If you want to explore the cliffs make sure you are well-prepared. It is not recommended to challenge them in your swimming or sunbathing outfit! When you plan to visit Grapefield Beach, prepare it well by taking necessities with you as no amenities are there to be found. Plan to take protective beach shoes too!
