Mangel Halto Beach

One of the most interesting places to spend time on One Happy Island is Mangel Halto Beach, located on Aruba’s southeastern coast in Post Chiquito, just south of the Spanish Lagoon. It features Magrove Trees whose extensive root systems that extend into the ocean’s waters make the perfect breeding ground for all kinds of tropical fish. The coral reef at this location offers what many feel is the best snorkeling site of the whole island. Its protected bay area and proximity to the Spanish Lagoon make it an excellent place for sea kayaking. And the beach itself is a lovely place to relax, swim, and sunbathe.

Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins

Gold had long been rumored to be present on Aruba, which is how the island got its name. Legends said there was red gold or “oro ruba” that in turn morphed into “Aruba.” It wasn’t until 1824 that real gold was finally discovered, and that started a major gold rush on the island. This was one of the sites where gold was processed, and over the decades this fascinating historical site produced more than 3 million pounds of gold!

Natural Bridges

Although Aruba’s best-known natural bridge collapsed in 2005, there are several others that are all amazing in their own right, having been formed by millennia of ocean waters crashing against limestone cliffs along the island’s northern coast. Visit natural bridges in Seroe Colorado (towards Baby Beach), at Wariruri Beach, and near Black Stone Beach, which features a unique tripod bridge.

California Lighthouse

Near the northwestern tip of Aruba sits the majestic California Lighthouse, constructed in 1910 and named after the S.S. California, a British wooden steamer ship that was shipwrecked off the northwestern coast in 1891 after crossing the ocean all the way from Liverpool. The site is one of the best spots on the island for panoramic views of One Happy Island’s gorgeous sunsets, during which you might even glimpse the elusive “green flash” on the horizon.

Caves in Arikok National Park

Many people don’t realize that nearly 20% of One Happy Island is protected as Arikok National Park. Within the official park boundaries are three different caves to explore: Guadirikiri Cave with its two chambers and unique lighting from natural light entering through holes in its roof; Fontein Cave with its ancient Arawak Indian drawingss on the ceilings; and Huliba Cave or the Tunnel of Love as it’s known thanks to its heart-shaped entrance (bring a flashlight for this 300-foot long passageway).

Visit Aruba to Experience Unforgettable Carnival Season

Aruba is famous for its beautiful beaches, sunny weather, and friendly atmosphere that truly make it One Happy Island. While there’s no doubt all of these things are true, some visitors aren’t aware of the island’s rich culture on top of it all. When it comes to celebrating the greatness that is Aruba, there’s no better representation of our beautiful home than Carnival Season. Are you looking to get covered in glitter, bounce around to some eclectic musical samplings, and enjoy the rich culture of Aruba? Then Aruba Carnival season is for you! What To Expect From Carnival Season The Carnival season is a 2-month long celebration of Aruba’s diverse culture. A unique blend of English Caribbean, Latin, Dutch, and other nationalities form a melting pot of traditions that all come together to create unforgettable experiences for locals and visitors alike. The island practically becomes one big party – and you’re invited. During the season there is something new and exciting going on every day, including parades with floats, costumed dancers and celebrators, live and recorded music playing through the streets, glitter flying everywhere, and more. Here are some fun events to look forward to! Torch Parade Signaling the opening of the Carnival, Aruba’s Torch Parade is an event where celebrators wear customized t-shirts and walk around with torches – hence the Torch Parade – through the streets for hours at night. The neon torches create a colorful display that gives onlookers just a taste of the colors and creativity that is yet to come at later events. Jouvert Morning and Pajama Party For the early bird comes is the Jouvert Morning & Pajama Party, where partiers arrive bright and early at 4AM to celebrate in their decorated casualwear and pajamas, welcoming the sunrise with music, dancing, and early morning fun. Grand Lighting Parade Carnival is all about shining bright, and during the Grand Lighting Parade, guests light up the entire island with bright and colorful outfits. These costumes often contain lights that shine brightly in the darkness of night, creating a unique scene while everyone dances around as their own light show. Grand Parade in Oranjestad The last major celebration of the Carnival, this huge parade through the streets of Aruba’s capital signals the end, but it doesn’t go out without a bang. The craziest costumes, the brightest lights, the loudest music, and the most fun happens at the Grand Parade in Oranjestad. After the parade, the Burning of King Momo – the patron saint of Carnivals – marks the end of celebrations with a large wood and paper mâché effigy burning where partygoers send off the celebration until next year. Don’t Miss a Thing with Punto di Oro Accommodations During a non-stop party throughout the island, it can be hard to get where you want to be unless you’re right in the thick of things. With Punto di Oro’s apartments for rent in Aruba, you’ll be able to enjoy the Carnival celebrations practically right outside your door. Conveniently...
