Things to do in Aruba

  • The island offers a variety of attractions to enjoy and a multitude of things to do all year around.
  • Submerge in Aruba's Natural Pool: It is a secret hidden rocky pool right beside the wild north coast surrounded by rocks, a perfect getaway for a moment of total relaxation. The only way to get there is by four-wheel drive! It's amazing swimming in there while the occasional big splash of a wave comes over your head.
  • Enjoy Baby Beach a family favorite: It is a fun place for young children and non-swimmers to wade in one to two feet of water for at least 50 yards out from the beach. The "beauty" of Baby Beach is sugary sand, easing into 8-10 feet of water before you have to deal with coral.
  • Get natural with Aloe Vera Factory : Take the Aruba Aloe Museum and Factory tour and get an inside look into the production process of the Aruba Aloe products; you will learn all about the old history of Aloe on Aruba. The tour really is something to see if you're into the history of how things are made.
  • Appreciate National Archaeological Museum of Aruba: Located in downtown Oranjestad, the museum has a collection of over 10,000 Amerindian artifacts spanning the Pre-Ceramic, Ceramic, and Historic Cultural Periods, and is comprised of a variety of media such as pottery, shell, stone, bone, and glass..
  • Admire Fort Zoutman And Willem III Tower: Over the years, the site has served as an aloe garden, jail, courthouse, junk room, and tax office. The fort was restored in 1974, the tower in 1983. The completed Willem III Tower was named after King William III of the Netherlands.
  • Head to California Light House: These ruins are located on the northern coast of Aruba, near the Natural Bridge. The ruins themselves look like they're from some ancient medieval fortress, made up of bulky stones. This place is interesting for its historical value. This would be a good place to go with a knowledgeable tour guide.
  • Get to Bushiribana Gold Smelter Ruins: Is a National Park in Soto that is named for the seven inlets but in fact there are more than those. It offers rocky coastal views and is a great way to view the dramatic ocean environments of Aruba.
  • Visit Aruba Butterfly Farm: A colorful experience you will never forget; soft music, beautiful garden, running water and the view of hundreds of different colorful butterflies in all stages of development. The tours are an amazing source of butterfly facts and stories.
  • Wander around Alto Vista Chapel: A small catholic chapel also known as "Pilgrims Church" that stands on the hills above the north shore of the sea and to the northeast of the town of Noord on the island of Aruba. It exudes tranquility on its dramatic setting above the sea.
