The rough sea on the north side of the island produces high waves that smash against the rocks. The Natural Pool is filled with water, flora and fauna directly from the ocean. It is located in the Arikok Natural Park and can only be reach by 4w-drive. At this spot you can also enjoy a nice swim.
In the centre of Aruba there’s mount Hooiberg. With a height of 165 m it’s a good place to go hiking. Be sure to bring bottles of water, though, because with the sun over your head you’ll definitely work up a sweat. Climb its 562 stairs to the ‘roof of Aruba’ during sunrise and experience a magical vista.
The capitol of Aruba is situated at a five minute distance from the airport. Oranjestad has a harbour where about 380 cruise ships dock every year. The dense centre has a lot of pleasant restaurants to offer, as well as high end stores, ranging from brands such as Prada and Louis Vuitton to Zara and Mango.
From Oranjestad this sandy beach is situated behind Eagle Beach. This is the site for a lot of high rise hotels, resorts and restaurants. It’s a nice place to visit. The nice thing about Aruba is that every beach is public. Even if there’s a hotel, it’s not prohibited to lay down a beach towel or put down your chair and enjoy a nice, sunny day.
This small island can be reached by boat during an ‘all-inclusive’ tour from Palm Tours. You can enjoy the water park, the banana boat, lunch, buffets, refreshments, as well as free usage of snorkeling gear. All you need to do is to bring towels, swimming gear and a camera/smartphone and enjoy. Unfortunately there are no flamingo’s….
