Savaneta is the oldest town on Aruba and one of the nicest places on the island. This small town is the center of fishing in Aruba. The local inhabitants make a lot of effort to make their village as attractive and interesting as possible, because it is clean and tidy. Everywhere you look there are many beautiful houses, both traditional and older restored houses. And the town is home to some fantastic fresh seafood restaurants. They are very popular with locals and tourists alike, so make sure you arrive in time to get a nice table by the water.
Boca Grandi is white sandy Caribbean beach paradise for kite surfers and spectators. The waves here are big and the currents strong. So swimming is discouraged, but the beach and sea views here are still amazing. You can easily look at the adventurous kite surfers moving over the water or take a relaxing walk and comb the beach for interesting finds.
The sand dunes of Aruba in the northeast part of the island are an interesting and surreal environment. This is a dune area of around 30 hectares. Between the semi-vegetated sandy hills you can walk through the bright white sand. The area is not accessible to cars so you’ll have to walk. You can walk up to the California Lighthouse that is nearby. And although you can’t go inside the lighthouse, the surroundings are beautiful. If you feel playful, you can also join the young and old in some famous dune surfing, where you slide down the sand on a piece of cardboard or sled.
Roughly in the center of Aruba you will find one of the largest nature reserves in the Caribbean. The Arikok National Park is home to some of the oldest Arawak cave drawings, as well as marked trails that showcase the wide variety of Aruban plants and animals, such as the dividivi and kwihi trees, rare and exotic cacti, tropical flowers, and birds and 'iguanas'. There is great geological diversity within the park as well as you can see rugged mountains of volcanic lava that form Aruba, interesting rock formations, and climb two of the highest hills on the island. A great destination for nature lovers.
Aruba’s Natural Pool or "Cura di Tortuga" is a remote and beautiful hidden pool on the northern coast of the island. It is formed by volcanic rock and rugged nature. Despite the difficulty in accessing this remote and somewhat hidden spot, many visitors find that a dip into the fresh, crisp waters of the pool well worth the trip.
