TJ and I started our summer out early this year, which after the winter we had, we welcomed with open arms. We’ve been obsessed with the beach ever since and though it’s almost labor day, we aren’t totally ready to say good bye to summer JUST yet. With that in mind, lets take a journey back to April in Aruba : )
I HIGHLY suggest renting a jeep if you plan on driving in Aruba. They tell you off roading is “off limits” but that is a lie. You can tell when you pick up your jeep. If the inside is covered in sand, you know the person before you had a blast, and so should you! Some of the best sights we saw were by just exploring beaches that were totally undeveloped.
You should also visit Arikok National park. There are beautiful natural bridges, mountain goats, caves, wild donkeys… TONS of stuff to explore. I didn’t realize before our trip that Aruba is basically a dessert. A dessert with palm trees. And lots of cacti!
But, if laying by the beach is what you’re looking for:
Then Eagle Beach in the low rise area is DEFINITELY what you are looking for. Just enough people for it not to be too remote, but definitely not crawling with people like the high rise section of the island is. See here:
While still beautiful, the low rise area is much more relaxed. See, these ladies definitely dig the vibe of the low rise area much better.
All in all Aruba is an awesome, adventurous, yet comfortably Americanized island. We’ve already talked about going back…
