Any globetrotter who’s booking a trip to Aruba knows what this decision ensues: ultimate Caribbean pleasure, pampering, passion, pizazz and price tags.
Although these vacation needs are easily fulfilled while leisuring around the resort and touristy areas, visitors ought to know that there is another fascinating world to be discovered just a few steps away from their all inclusive comfort zone.
While Aruba’s Palm Beach strip is dotted with top of the bill resorts, lively beach bars, the latest water sport facilities, kiosks, sunbathers, swimmers, joggers and strollers, other local beaches like Arashi, Baby Beach or Eagle Beach offer the same pristine waters and soft white sands in a more tranquil environment.
There is no need to wonder, find your favorite spot in the sun - access to all the beaches on this island is free of charge. And so are many natural and historical attractions like the Quadirikiri Caves, Alto Vista Chapel or the Bushiribana Gold Smelter Ruins.
Exploring the island of Aruba can be achieved in a number of ways. Off-roading trips in 4x4 jeeps or Quad racers are among the popular tours, but also horseback riding, sailing and snorkeling are great options to discover more about this destination. For those wanting to dig a little deeper into the island’s culture and history, the Aruba Aloe Factory and Museum offers a complementary tour of the Aloe Vera industry and background.
