Aruba is not known so much for its flamingos as for its beaches and aloe. But you'll find these beautiful pink birds on Renaissance Island, which is owned by the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino in the capital city, Oranjestad. While the city itself is alive with beautiful Dutch architecture, Renaissance island is manmade and accessible via boat.
The island is a naturalist's delight: you'll find pelicans and gentle amphibious creatures along the Nature Walk. A great place to lie in a hammock and take in the beautiful sunset.
