One of my most favourite places I’ve ever been has to be Aruba, hands down. The main reason being flamingo beach on renaissance island.
Getting there is fairly straight forward but you have to book. They only allow a set number of people over to the island which is around a 15/20 minute boat trip from the renaissance hotel in Aruba. From what I remember I think it was around $100 for the day but that includes the boat trip there and back, access to flamingo beach, access to iguana beach and lunch at the restaurant, with a wide range on the menu.
Iguana beach is more of a family beach, it’s got a good vibe, the sea is fairly shallow and of course iguanas walking about the place. Flamingo beach is where it was happening, naturally there are flamingos walking around the beach, you can feed them (flamingo food only obviously) the sea is so clear and blue perfect for swimming or floating around in. There are plenty of sun loungers around, hammocks included. I would recommend a trip to renaissance island if your ever lucky enough to visit Aruba. It’s an amazing island !! I’ve added pictures/ videos of my trip. Check out how close I got to my new pink leggy friends.
