Sunset cruise soul beach festival
Sunsets are the main attraction of Aruba as they are quite pleasing and beautiful. I was fascinated to see the view of sun setting at Palm Beach.
Not only there were tourists but there were also many locals who were equally excited to witness the sunset. The beach is full fun spot as there are numerous bars and snack counters where you can taste the local cuisine of the island.
Some of the famous cocktails served on the island are woo-woo pink and bloody marry.
I also visited soul beach festival taking place in Oranjestad. The beach festival was awesome as there were was lot of happening like beach parties, club nights, gigs etc.
De palm island and baby beach
Though my guide took me to, many islands but de Palm Island was best from the rest. The main attractions of the island are blue parrotfish water park and under water coral formations.
The underwater coral formations are new for tourists hailing from Asian and African countries.
You must be thinking that Aruba is all about young people hanging around but no, there is also something for kids.
I visited baby beach, which was full kids. The reason parents bring their kids on this beach is because of the shallow water at the beaches. Not only this, there is a café on the beach which caters to the need of kids.
Nightlife and Aruba carnival
Aruba’s night life is as splendid as its beaches. Marriott resort and Stellaris Casino is the one stop place for all night fun and luck.
Stellaris Casino draws tourists from nearby islands and is totally mesmerizing. I enjoyed a lot in the casino and yes, won some bucks too.
Aruba carnival is a month long festival. Luckily I reached Aruba at the time of festival and was fascinated to see people from every continent and part of the world.
What adds the charm to the festival is the crowning of queen and water sports.
Scuba diving and California light house.
The west coast of Aruba is famous for coral reef, which draws huge number of tourists who wants to see them live. This can only be done by scuba diving. I hired a coach and was all set for scuba diving. When I was inside the sea I saw neon parrotfish, giant mantra rays among others.
Not only did I see the fishes, I also happened to see lots of wrecks. The best among them was Antilla German ship from the Second World War.
On the way was old California light house which was built in 1910. It is near the California dunes which is also a famous tourist destination.
Fascinating eagle beach
Eagle beach is very close to Palm Beach and is just amazing and more peaceful than any other beach in Aruba. The beach has many shaded areas and family sized benches which are perfect spot to leisure and see the time pass.
