61 Schotlandstraat, Oranjestad, Aruba

Hooiberg is a distinctive volcanic formation in the middle of the island. Hooiberg is the Dutch word for "haystack" which seems apt since the mountain is shaped like a haystack, even if it's green and 165 meters (541 feet) tall. The second highest peak on the island, it is also seen on Aruba's coat of arms symbolizing Aruba's rise out of the sea. Earlier, in 1950s, there were 900 steps that lead to the top of this mountain. However, they were worn out and posed great dangers for the climbers and visitors. After the restoration in 1991, there are now 587 steps with a gazebo that allows the visitors to rest and also soak in the stunning panoramic views of the island and even Venezuela if the skies are clear.

Manchebo Beach

This beach paradise, with its white powder sand and crystal clear turquoise water, is probably one of the best on the island. Lounge on a beach chair under the shade of an umbrella with your favorite book or people watch, take a soothing swim in the calm water or go scuba diving and experience the beauty of Aruba's marine life, whatever you fancy, you're sure to have a great time. There are a number of restaurants and bars along the beach that offer delicious local food and drinks and plenty of resorts should you wish to live by the beach.

Malmok Beach

The sky is the limit at picturesque Malmok Beach. Quieter than some of the larger beaches in Aruba, this pristine alcove is perfect for snorkeling with its crystal clear waters and teeming sea life. Calm currents and steady winds also provide great conditions for windsurfing. When you get a glimpse beneath the surface, you'll see that this intimate beach has more to offer than first meets the eye. Halfway submerged, with birds perched atop the exposed part, is a German freighter from WWII called the Antilla, drawing scuba divers to the site alongside snorkelers. Come on down and see for yourself.

Baby Beach

A semi-circular strip of sand surrounding the waters of a shallow, man-made cove, Baby Beach is a scenic getaway from the crowds that throng the island's more expansive beaches. With its calm, shallow waters, the beach is especially favored by families as the waters are safe even for young children. The crystal-clear, turquoise waters invite you to indulge in a swim surrounded by sweeping views of the sprawling sea just beyond the shelter of the cove and the windswept beach. With your toes in the sand and the wind in your hair, stand rooted in wonder as you behold the marvelous sight that is Baby Beach. The Beach is also a popular destination for snorkeling, with waters that teem with colorful tropical fish close to the inlet. For refreshments, the beach offers a snack shack serving hot dogs and hamburgers. Umbrellas and lounge chairs are also available on hire.
