Known as Aruba’s cultural capital, San Nicolas is where you’ll find the intricate colorful street art gracing the buildings and walls around Main Street. Created by talented local and international artists at the Aruba Art Fair, the murals depict Arubans, tropical animals, and even optical illusions. Visitors can take a guided tour to learn more about the murals, or simply stroll the area at leisure.

One of Aruba’s most beautiful beaches, Mangel Halto offers endless opportunities for gorgeous photos. Capture a pic on the wooden deck or ladder leading to the water, or amidst the hanging branches of lush, leafy mangroves.

The abundance of coral reef at Mangel Halto makes it one of the best snorkeling spots on the entire island, with crystal clear-blue water perfect for photographing the numerous species of tropical fish in their habitat.

The Renaissance Aruba Resort offers Aruba’s only private island, a must-see when visiting. One side is home to iguanas, the other is where you’ll find flocks of pretty pink flamingos sure to brighten up any IG feed. If animals aren’t your thing, book a private seaside cabana where you can lounge in an over-water hammock while sipping a fruity drink and enjoying incredible views of Aruba’s pristine turquoise water.

Fofoti and divi divi trees are trademarks of Aruba. The trees have twisted, bent trunks that lean Southwest thanks to the blowing trade winds. Eagle beach is home to an iconic fofoti tree that, along with the white sand, blue sea, and clear sky, makes a gorgeous natural backdrop for your vacay pics. Travelers visiting during sunset can capture the sky as it changes to various gorgeous hues.

Aruba is home to several natural bridges. Although the largest and most popular of them collapsed years ago, the remaining bridges are photo-worthy in their own right. While some of them formed from sunken-in caves, others have formed from water and wind erosion. With the sea beneath them, these natural phenomena serve as unforgettable locations for unique nature photos.
