Rodger’s Beach is a narrow powdery white strip close to famous Baby Beach yet has a more authentic feel to it as fishermen anchor their colorful boats here, protected by the calm waters of the bay.
During the week Rodger’s Beach is very quiet and perfect to read a book or indulge the crystal-clear Caribbean; on weekends this Aruba beach is often populated by local families.
Fun fact: Rodger's Beach was named after the British Captain Rodger, who opened Aruba's first oil refinery in San Nicolas, Aruba Lago Refinery in 1928. With captain Rodger at its helm, the refinery brought prosperity to Aruba. The refinery can be seen from Rodger's Beach.
