If I can step away from Covid discussions for a sec:

I watch several Aruba videos on Youtube pretty much every day. In some of those vids there seems to be a lot of variations in the locations of end/start of the south and west coast beach limits.
So, who better to know the correct limits of all the (tourist-y) beaches than the folks in this BB?

Starting at the old Bushiri location and heading west:
What is the name of the beach at that Bushiri site?
Where does that beach end and the Druif Beach at the Tam begin?

Then, where does Druif Beach end and Manchebo Beach (if there is such a named beach??) begin?
Next, where does Manchebo Beach end and Eagle Beach begin?
From there, where does Eagle Beach end and Palm Beach begin?

Then, seeing the Arashi, Mangel Halto, and Tres Trapi names for beaches shows me my limited knowledge of what's beyond the new Ritz. I know nothing of what's up there except the Lighthouse and the restaurant next door!

I tried to find some sort of map showing the beaches and their names but I found none.

Bushiri Beach - the name of the beach area where the old Bushiri Hotel was located.

Druif - from the Tam to Aruba Beach Club

Manchebo (also known as Punta Brabo) - the beach area were Manchebo Resort is located

Eagle - from the Bucuti to Amsterdam Manor

Palm - from the Phoenix to the Ritz

This is fairly good website that explains the different beach locations: http://beachesofaruba.com/aruba-beaches ... -of-aruba/
