Oranjestad ©
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
Visiting Waterskiing & Jetskiing and Malmok Beach will get you outdoors. Family-friendly places like Manchebo Beach and Mangel Halto Beach will thrill your kids. Go for a jaunt from Oranjestad to San Nicolas to see Baby Beach about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Boca Catalina, explore the striking landscape at Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and identify plant and animal life at Donkey Sanctuary Aruba.
