Savaneta
Aruba's one-time capital and oldest settlement, and also the location of the island's oldest surviving home, can be found on the southeastern corner of the island. A sleepy town today, Savaneta was settled by the Dutch after the island was returned by the British in 1816. A day trip to the warren of streets offers a chance to see some of the island's historic buildings without the bustle of Oranjestad. Two beaches are fronted by a handful of low-slung hotels and a collection of restaurants. Both small stretches of sand feel blissfully remote and have excellent snorkeling and fishing. For those looking for more action, it's possible to sign up for all manner of excursions like kayaking and ATV adventures.
