Oranjestad
Oranjestad has some of the cutest and most colourful buildings in Aruba and it felt just like Disneyland walking around there. The town is pretty dead by night so I do recommend you take stroll during the day – and bring lots of water!

Eagle Beach
One of the most beautiful beaches in Aruba, it’s super wide and the water is perfect. Do note that since it’s one of the most famous beaches in Aruba it might get a little crowded during high season. But it’s still something you have to visit!

Get ready for cuteness overload! The donkey sanctuary is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization with a mission to save the donkeys on Aruba. Here you can help with daily chores of feeding and caring for the donkeys or simply watch them being cute.

Arikok National Park
You can access most places on the island with a rented car. Arikok National Park is not really one of them, of course depending on which car you rent (we learned this the hard way). For this specific location it’s better to go on a Jeep tour to be able to see it. If you decide to go by yourself do note that there’s a fee of $11 per person to enter the park.

Renaissance Island
The flamingos can only be found on a private (hotel) island. While it's a great experience to see the majestic animals up close and personal and even feed them - it's a bit pricey. You have to either book a night's stay at the fancy Renaissance Hotel or buy a day pass for $125 per person. If you choose the latter, be ready to queue in front of the hotel at 6am.

California Lighthouse
The lighthouse was built between 1914 and 1916. It was named after the steamship California which was wrecked nearby in 1891. You can pay a small fee to enter the lighthouse and enjoy the magnificent view from the top.
