For my fellow Divi owners just an update on the beach condition. Starting at the new park until the beach bar the beach is in great shape ! No rocks a nice sandy beach . From the beach bar to the rock climbing wall it's rocky still not in great shape . The beach after the rock climbing wall is IMO the best beach in Aruba !Perfect
shape the best I've seen in years . Casa del Mar and The ABC's beach hasn't come back yet :( very rocky ,you even have to be careful walking :( It can be very hard on your feet. After ABC is my second favorite beach Eagle and it's also in the best shape in years especially around The Costa LInda . Also getting a Palapa is very easy most times of the day at the DIVI .Happy New Years :D

Thanks for the info. We'll be at Costa Linda in April; good to know Eagle Beach is in good shape. Just love it there.
Happy New right back to you.

Is the new park you are talking about what used to be the site of the old Bushiri resort?

I think not. Nothing at the old Bushiri site about 2 months ago. I can’t imagine they build this fast. What is new, is at Druif Beach in front of the Divi Golf and Beach resort and next to Divi Dutch Village.

How's the beachfront at the Tam from the bunker bar to the pool area and down to the new gym? Is it still all rocks and boulders or did it improve?

Still very rocky but there are some spots that are swimmable . The spot by the new gym is great :D you could wade in the sea and hang out with the Pelicans .
