Overview Of The Port Of Oranjestad

About Oranjestad
Aruba lies just off the Venezuelan coast in the southern Caribbean. Oranjestad is it's capital.

There are several shopping malls located straight across the street from the cruise terminal. One of these, the Royal Plaza Mall, has a wide selection of locally made gift items.

The main shopping area in Oranjestad is called Caya G. F. Betico Croes.

Children and nature lovers may enjoy a visit to the Butterfly Farm on Palm Beach.

The California Lighthouse on the north western tip of the island is a popular excursion with visitors.

Balashi Brewery offer tours of their facilities and Balashi Gardens bar and restaurant is next door.

Tierra del Sol, is the only 18 hole golf course on the island, situated on the scenic north west coast.

Palm Beach, a 15 minute taxi ride from the cruise terminal, offers scuba diving, parasailing, beach volleyball and banana boat rides. Baby Beach, 40 minutes away by taxi, is good for families and inexperienced swimmers as the water, in a shallow pool created by man-made rock breakwaters, is no more than 5 feet deep.

Traditional dishes include 'stoba' (lamb or goat stew), 'balchi di pisca' (balls of cod or salmon) and 'cala' (bean fritters). 'Pastechi', a pie filled with either cheese or beef is a favourite snack.
