It's no surprise that the beaches are the number one destination for anyone vacationing in Aruba. From crowded beaches with a party atmosphere to more secluded beaches that you'll have to drive to, Aruba has more than enough to satisfy everyone. Highlights include the outstandingly beautiful Eagle Beach. Elsewhere Palm Beach is perhaps equally as pretty, although it does draw larger crowds.
Anyone who regularly goes on holidays to Aruba will tell you just how fantastic the diving is. Not only can you take a close look at some beautiful creatures, but there are also a number of shipwrecks just waiting to be explored. Head to Boca Catalina or the Antilla Shipwreck for a particularly memorable diving experience. Diving amongst the Antilla Shipwreck allows you to see first hand a German 400-feet cargo ship that was in use during the second world war.
Aruba gets its name from 'red gold' (oro ruba). Discoveries of the gold on the island can be traced back to the 19th Century. Those discoveries resulted in gold mines on the island which can still be visited today. You can either take a tour or discover them for yourself, one is located in Bushiribana on the northern coast whilst the other is in the south-west in Balashi.
If you're heading to Aruba then Balashi Beer is an absolute must. Ideal after a day on the beach, the name Balashi comes from the words 'Bala Bala' which translates as 'near the sea'. As the only beer that's actually brewed on Aruba, it's worth sampling if you want to get a true taste of the island. You can even visit the brewery, with daily tours available. Or if alcohol is not your thing, why not try out what they call the 'Balashi Cocktail'. A Balashi Cocktail is drinking water but is known for its cleanliness and its taste. By heating seawater under a vacuum in the water and energy factory, the condensed water vapor is then baked with coral stone which adds calcium and minerals to the water, resulting in a very tasty glass of H2O.
