- Aruba is one of the few places left on the planet where couples can truly feel that the world is theirs alone and be surrounded by nature’s special undisturbed beauty. From one end of the island to the other and throughout its interior, natural wonders such as the mysterious rock formations at Casibari and Ayo, the Natural Pool, the Tunnel of Love, the scenic panorama at the California Lighthouse, alabaster sand dunes and picture perfect Baby Beach each has its own special romantic allure. Couples can discover their own favourite spots to enjoy each other’s company, and at absolutely no cost!
Aruba lies at the heart of the southern Caribbean. The island is only 19.6 miles long and 6 miles across at its widest point. Aruba boasts year-round great weather, cooling trade winds and friendly people. On the south and west coasts are miles of pristine white, sandy beaches that rank among the most beautiful in the world, rimmed by turquoise-blue waters with visibility in some areas to a depth of a hundred feet.
Aruba is a great destination for sun-worshippers and a popular stop for cruise ship passengers. Over a million visitors arrive on this tiny island each year enticed by its luxury resorts, first-class restaurants, 24-hour casinos and excellent water-sports facilities.
Aruba is a beautiful, romantic Caribbean hideaway. Bonbini! Welcome to Aruba!
