Aruba. The Beach Boys sang about it. The Spanish conquistadors settled it. And the Dutch left their architectural mark on it. This Caribbean escape - once dubbed the 'useless' island by Spanish fortune seekers because no treasure was found there - is worth its weight in gold for sun-starved travellers and die-hard romantics.
Everyday is beach day on this pint sized island. Hear the squeak of sandy shores as you walk hand-in-hand looking for your 'his and her' spot in the warm sunshine. Both Durif Beach and Palm Beach are popular with couples thanks to their long stretched and candy-striped sunsets. Palm Beach has the added draw card of a sprinkling of bars and restaurants.
But Aruba hasn't just got crystal clear waters and beaches to sigh over. The island's got caves to explore, reefs teaming with fish and plenty of wildlife sanctuaries. Everywhere you'll see the iconic divi-divi tree, which is sculpted by the wind. And the Island's capital, Oranjestad is loved for its Dutch-influenced colourful buildings, its mix of high end shops, and daily markets along the waterfront. All this adds up to a top notch spot for wooing and 'I do-ing'.
