Caribbean Islands - Aruba (Chapter)
This is the Aruba chapter from Lonely Planet’s Caribbean Islands guidebook.
Americans from the east coast fleeing winter make Aruba the most touristed island in the southern Caribbean. However, venture away from the resorts and you’ll find that Aruba offers rugged, windswept vistas and uncrowded beaches.
- frolic on a long ribbon of powdery sand at Eagle Beach, the best beach on an island famous for them
- munch a lobster at one of Oranjestad’s traditional seafood restaurants
- it’s bottoms up at one of Aruba’s rum shops, where the day’s events are dissected and you never know what will happen next
- restaurants & accommodations
Coverage includes: Understand Aruba, History, Culture, Landscape & Wildlife, Survival Guide, Directory A-Z, Getting There & Away, Getting Around, Oranjestad, Resort Area, Northwest Coast, Northeast Coast, Arikok National Wildlife Park and San Nicolas.
