Bus station is pretty close to the pier, down by the shops and vendors. I've been to Aruba twice....the first time, I took the bus to Eagle Beach near the low rise hotels and had the same experience as Buckeye. It is a really nice beach, but the winds were so bad at that time, that you did get sand blasted constantly so I didn't stay long. Not sure if its like that all the time, that cruise was in June. Was there in 2004, took a bus tour of the island and then got dropped off at Palm Beach near the high rise hotels. That was a much better beach, I thought. Coming back to town, we took a shuttle van for $1pp. We were waiting for the bus and I guess these vans go back and forth all day too, so that worked out well. Happy sails....
