Manchebo Beach, Aruba
There is no substitute!
Pristine is the first word that comes to mind when I think of my visit to this beach. A second choice might be "postcard perfect."
As noted in the video above, all is true. The warm Caribbean breeze is deceiving and without sunscreen, you will most certainly be crispy by days end.
Famous Aruba beaches include Eagle Beach which has been singled out as the number one Caribbean beach in a USA Today survey; and Palm Beach, which was voted best family-friendly beach in the world by The Travel Channel.
So why did we visit Manchebo Beach you ask? Simple - Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa offers couples massages on the beach. My partner and I enjoyed a full hour of serious massage technique, while enjoying the sounds of the ocean and that amazing Caribbean breeze that I keep raving about.
TIP: We booked our appointment first thing in the morning in order to avoid any potential unwanted beach 'noise'. Since this was our first visit to Manchebo Beach, we were unsure if by mid-day, the beach would be packed with intoxicated 20-something year olds. For future reference - the beach remained in a quiet 'zen-like' state for the many hours that we spent there.
