"By far this was one of my favorite ports EVER!" - lrutledge
"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!" - kmaultsby
"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. " - sbeaule71
