Destination guide

A vast stretch of white sand

Get ready to discover the swathe of picture-perfect sand in Palm Beach. Backed by swaying palms and Palm Beach vacation rentals, a stay here is all about serious rest and relaxation. You can spend the hot days soaking up the rays occasionally dragging yourself down to the sea to cool off or take part in the many water sports.

Things to do

History and culture in Oranjestad

Don't forget the historical and cultural attractions on the island. Just a short drive from your Palm Beach vacation rental, you can visit the Archeological Museum in downtown Oranjestad which houses artifacts that date back as far as 2,500 BC and preserves the island's Amerindian cultural heritage. Aloe vera has long been known to protect wearers from the sun and was introduced to the island back in the mid-19th century. At the Aruba Aloe Museum and Factory, you can learn about this wonder plant, its uses and purchase a whole line of skin care protects.


Not a beach dweller? Fear not

If you're not a beach dweller, there are countless things to do near your Palm Beach vacation rental besides sun worshipping. Those with PADI certification can join daily excursions in the clear waters to view colorful exotic marine life and coral. Alternatively, jump on board a sailing charter which cruises along the coast stopping occasionally to allow you to snorkel or swim. You can feel like an easy rider as you cruise across the island on a rented Harley Davidson or rejuvenate the mind and body at one the many yoga schools nearby.


A truly year-round Caribbean island

Though Aruba is in the Caribbean, it lies far away from the hurricane belt, meaning you can visit this pleasant island all year round. January to March are the busiest time due to the comfortable temperature, so if you want to visit during spring, book up your Palm Beach vacation rental early to avoid disappointment. That said, the hot weather from April through to August is also delightful, and with lower accommodation pricing it is becoming increasingly popular. Aruba receives trade winds throughout the year creating ideal sailing and water sports conditions.

Natural features

Watch wading herons and cormorants

There are a range of habitats and ecosystems near Palm Beach vacation rentals, but arguably one of the most interesting is the Bubali Bird Sanctuary. This relatively small park has over 60 species of migratory birds to tick off the list. Here, you are almost guarantees to spot herons wading in the shallows looking for fish, noisy coots and cormorants to name but a few. With plans in the pipeline to create further breeding grounds, this sanctuary can only get better for birders. Climb to the top of the observation tower for the best views.
