What Should You Do in Aruba?

What to do in Aruba?

There are plenty of options for visitors in Aruba. It’s a small island, made up of a single coastline – a wide strand of sand between the Caribbean and the Atlantic – separated by the vast Praia Da Rocha (marsh lands) that are the island’s native terrain. It’s a small, narrow strip of land, big enough to see the sunset over the ocean far away, but small enough still to have its share of attractions and activities.

The island is surrounded by turquoise seas of clear water, with palms and sandy beaches on two sides. There’s Aruba’s largest hotel complex, the Coral Reef Club, which provides accommodation to nearly everyone who sets their foot on the island. There’s also a huge golf course, the Palm Beach Resort, and plenty of other attractions, including an airport, a port, and commercial buildings. You can get to Aruba by air, by sea or by road. Most visitors fly to the island of Aruba, but cruises from the mainland reach it regularly too.

The island’s most popular spot is its coast, where there are plenty of restaurants and hotels. You’ll find plenty of beach activities in this area, too, such as swimming, windsurfing, sailing, and snorkeling. If you’re into surfing, then consider staying at the Aruba Hi-Winds, which has perfect waves for surfing lessons. Other popular beach activities include banana riding, banana boating and lounging on the beach.

In the north, you’ll find the Bikini Beach Resort & Spa, with its seven-mile stretch of white sand beach. This is where you’ll find the famous “Bikini Beach” sunsets. Other popular activities include riding ATVs, camping, hiking, kayaking, and paragliding. If you want to party, then consider staying at the Aria Tropical Club, which has dance lessons, a bar and lounge, pool, and game rooms.

If you enjoy water sports, then you’ll find plenty of them on the island. Kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, and parasailing are only a few of them that you can try. Surfing is another sport you might try, and you’ll find all kinds of rapids on the island. Fly-fishing, windsurfing, kayaking, and wakeboarding are other activities you may enjoy.

There are plenty of fun things to do in Aruba, but it’s no place for your kids. However, if you plan to take your kids to the beach, make sure you leave them prepared for their Aruba experience. Make sure they’re properly checked out by a doctor before you take them; and keep in mind that some beaches (like Bikini Beach) have age restrictions. But overall, if you do your research you should be able to come up with some great options for your vacation to the island. And don’t forget to enjoy yourself!…

Croatia: Land Of Beaches

Croatia coast view from Dubrovnik

The Croatian coast is one of the most attractive sea front holiday destinations in Europe.

The Adriatic coastline runs from the southern end of the Black Sea in the south to the Adriatic sea at the north. Adriatic Cruise lines, one of the largest cruise operators in the world, operate cruises along the Croatian coast taking visitors to more than 80 ports of call.

Most of the Croatian Dalmatian coast is off the Greek Island of Zakynthos and is thus not well explored. However, there are several small secluded coves and pockets along the coast which offer exciting and varied water sports activities.

The Adriatic Coastline

The Adriatic coastline starts from the southern end of the island of Skopje and includes three Islands: Kvarner, Gjakova, and Zivoron.

Kvarner Island is the largest Island of the Croatian coast and is a popular resort town. It has a picturesque pine wood mountain and the “blue lagoon”.

Skopje Island, the second largest Island, is home to some beautiful beaches and the village of Pula.

What to See

Once in the Dalmatian Coast you will need to decide which direction you would like to travel and which destinations you would like to visit.

A Dalmatian holiday complete without visiting Orbus or Zadar islands is nearly impossible. This is because Orbus is the capital of Dalmatia and Zadar is the largest Island of Dalmatia. Both Islands are popular tourist places and a sightseeing excursion to Orbus is an enjoyable and worthwhile part of any Croatian cruise trip.

Orbus

Orbus is home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the City of Pula and the Town of Split. It is also home to a number of museums and art galleries.

A stay in Orbus city is a must as it is an authentic historic center of Croatia. If you visit the Old Town of Split you can marvel at the Monastery with its leaning minaret.

While in Split take a gondola ride on its stunning coastline and experience the distinctive atmosphere of the Dalmatian Coast.

Dubrovnik

If you like a more laid back feel then the town of Dubrovnik offers you that and much more. The old town and seaside cafes, markets and museums are perfect for spending your time.

Be sure to try the homemade sausages at the famous “sausage castle!”

Final Words

Croatian islands are wonderful and offer visitors an exciting and different perspective on the world.

The islands of the Dalmatian Coast have an interesting history and offer something for everyone.

The weather is warm and pleasant most of the year. The last three months of the year can see very high winds and storms, which can be harsh on the exposed skin. However, the islands are a great place to take a holiday. If you haven’t already done so, you’re missing out!…
