About Oranjestad, Aruba

Compact Aruba is a study in contrasts: a pastel rainbow of economic downtown and high-rise hotels. Creole seafood and classic Dutch cuisine. Crystalline blue waters and rugged desert.

Aruba is a beautiful, desert like island with plenty of gorgeous coastline. We rented a private taxi that brought us all over the island (lighthouse, oldest church, wild donkeys, Casibari rock formations, and to Baby Beach which was absolutely gorgeous. Small, uncrowded and lagoon-like. The water at Baby Beach was crystal clear turquoise, warm and very shallow. You could walk out for a long, long time before it got deep. There is a restaurant/bar on the beach available for food and drinks. I wish we would have had longer to stay at this beach. It was gorgeous.

We walked off the ship, down the sidewalk about 20 minutes through town and settled on a beach area right off the main street. We were the only ones there and we saw parrots and lizards. It was great!

Best cruise stop ever! Got off the boat and hopped on the public transportation bus right outside of the cruise dock. Got off at one of the beach stops the bus stops at. (The beach stops are a short bus ride about 3 minutes) (stop at any beach stop all of them are beautiful) Aruba has stores such as Dunkin Doughnuts right across the street from the beach. There are a lot of resorts on the beach and you can buy food and drinks from there.

From the pier, there is a trolley that travels in loop around Downtown. It is a free service. When the cruiseship arrive in late May, many places are quiet. There is no need to wait at restaurants or shops.

Eagle beach is a must do. Public bus is real cheap and easy to get to, just across the street from the Port. Umbrellas and chairs available to rent, they were willing to negotiate the price since we got 3 umbrellas and 9 chairs.
