Palm Beach Restoration Project Starts June 2018

Glad to see they are doing something to help the beach out.. but will stink if they are doing the area in front of your hotel when you are there..

I wonder if this will actually get underway on time. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will be fine for our trip in August!

I wonder if anyone is there now who sees anything happening?

Thanks for the info GoGiants. It is always good to be forewarned. I imagine this Forum will get updates about the Project from vacationers witnessing what is going on.

Good Morning....I will be arriving in Aruba for the first time in October. I have been looking forward to this vacation...but am having second thoughts now. I am looking at maps...but am still questioning the area for the beach restoration. Will the beach in front of the Bucuti be part of this project? Thank you for your help.

YiaYia ..no :)

the area where they are doing the dredging/revitalization/restoration is 2+ miles north of the Bucuti in the Palm Beach area.

The project has started. You can see the dredge on the Playa Linda's webcam: http://www.playalinda.com/webcams/

Looks pretty small and not disturbing much, but you can also see they have blocked off water access here.
