This could be your next unforgettable destination
Offering miles of sandy beaches and a buzzing harbour city, Aruba is one of the most popular LGBTQ+ and family-friendly islands in the Caribbean. Consistently voted one of the best beaches in the world, a quick Google image search of Eagle Beach will tell you why.
Its crystal clear waters are ideal for swimming and snorkelling, so see if you and the kids can spot parrotfish, squid or butterfly fish. Aruba’s colourful capital city, Oranjestad, is well worth strolling around. Make sure you visit on a Tuesday evening and enjoy the spectacle that is the weekly Bon Bini festival. This famous folkloric Aruban festival is a great way to immerse yourselves in authentic Aruban culture and cuisine.
Love diving? There are a number of fascinating wreck dive sites in Aruba’s waters, including two unique airplane wrecks, both purposefully sunk to create artificial reefs.
