Coral coast in Aruba
Beach in Aruba
Aruba is a small island north of Venezuela and part of the Lesser Antilles. Special attractions for travelers are the Caribbean beaches and the protected underwater world around the island, which is extremely popular with divers. About one fifth of the island belongs to the Arikok National Park. Besides rare animal and plant species such as the Divi Divi trees tilted by the wind, the Fontein Cave is the main attraction of the park. A nice afternoon walk will take you through the colorful capital Oranjestad, where you will find traces of the Dutch colonial period as well as US-American influences.
