Top 5 Places To Visit in Aruba, Oranjestad

Are you a huge travel bug considering a trip to the Big Happy Island? Caribbean islands have a lot to offer if you have a strong preference for some good sun, tropical drinks and breath taking beautiful views. Aruba is a slow paced destination for those who are looking to take a break from life for just a moment. I booked a last minute trip here just out of curiosity to find out why this is such a popular tourist attraction and I sure don’t regret it. Keep reading for some popular Aruba attractions that will make your trip worthwhile!

 

  1. Natural Pool aka Conchi:

    It is located on the coastline of Aruba’s rugged terrain. A naturally formed pool-like hole by the edge of the rocks. It is not recommended to swim here due to the strong currents but visitors still do so on shallow days. Due to the location of this environment, tourists must visit this site on foot but totally worth the view! We had to hike down a long road of rocks and steps to get near the Natural Pool. Our amazing tour guide showed us raw sea salt that formed naturally from on the shore.

  1. Aruba’s Quadirikiri Bat Cave:

    Have you ever wanted the chance to say you’ve been in a LIVE bat cave? Well here is your chance! A must see in Aruba is an active Bat Cave that spans 98 feet deep full of fruit bats is a sight you’ll never forget. We toured this cave for quite some time, you may feel a bit claustrophobic and hot but will not regret what you end up seeing. Our tour guide was cool enough to get all of the bats into one prime location so we could all get some prime shots of them in action. It was amazing!

  1. Flamingo Beach:

    This is dependent on the hotel you stay at as it determines your access to this beach, I stayed at the Renaissance in downtown at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, staying there granted visitors unlimited access to the resort’s private island. We traveled to the private island through a boat shuttle that arrives directly inside the hotel lobby and comes every 15 minutes. The option to tan next to beautiful flamingos is truly possible here!

  1. Baby Beach:

    Aside from the adorable name of this place, if you have a minor fear of swimming and high tides, this is the beach for you! Baby Beach has very clear and shallow shores for those of you who have trouble swimming or even floating for that fact.

  2. Atlantis Submarine:

    Conveniently located across the street from the Renaissance, a relaxing 1 hour long ride bringing passengers over 100 feet deep into the clear Caribbean ocean. The Atlantis tours you around a real live shipwreck, natural corals, and exotic fish.
