Aruba- a tropical island many would say is paradise, and it is. Being only about 20 miles wide and 6 miles in length, it is easy to explore the entirety of the island within a few days! In this guide, I will discuss:

- must hit beaches

- the National park of Aruba

- other must do activities

- food

The beaches of Aruba are known to have the clearest water and the best white sand beaches in the Caribbean.

Palm Beach
@angiem
This is Palm beach- this is the beach that most hotels are found to reside, with the exception of Eagle beach. On this beach, many hotel residents will be found, and many locals who are trying to also enjoy a beach day. This beach also provides palapa rentals, so that the guests may hide from the scorching sun.

Eagle Beach
@angiem
Eagle beach is also another beach in which hotels sit along. This beach is known for the longest stretch of sand in Aruba. An important note is that this beach does contain the most wave activity of the beaches that are swimmable-but waves just make it more fun!

Baby Beach
@angiem
Baby beach is by far, the best beach in Aruba, and rightfully so. It contains the clearest ocean water in Aruba. While swimming through the water, it is very common for people to see clear fish swimming along. Note that there are no hotels at this beach, and requires about a thirty minute drive if you are staying at Palm or Eagle beach. It is totally worth it to spend the day there. You are able to rent a beach tent and/or lounge chairs.

Being a small island, I found it shocking that there was a national park- and it is one of the most beautiful parks I've been to. It provides a wide range of activity for anyone to take part in. There are many beaches people can see here, although not swimmable due to waves. Some of the beaches here are even home to sea turtles, and you may even find some sites for turtle hatchings! There is a chance to hike along a few trails, and you also can go cave exploring! 

Arikok National Park

There are still many other activities you can take part in on the island!

California Lighthouse
@angiem
There is not much to this, just a lighthouse. However, it is a must to get a beautiful panoramic view of the north side of the island! And if you're lucky enough to have a jeep, you can go riding through the sand dunes too!

Donkey Sanctuary Aruba
@angiem
There is not much to it- just a lot of donkeys! Definitely a place to visit if you are going with kids.

That's all I have for you! There is not much to the tiny island of Aruba, and it is easy to explore the entirety of the island in 1-2 days. I hope this guide gives you a start on what are some must sees of the island!
