It’s Time to Think Pink On Flamingo Beach


You pretty much need to visit Flamingo Beach like right now

Renaissance Island is home to Aruba’s only private beaches. It’s also home to a gaggle of preening, prancing flamingos. 

The feathery friends on Flamingo Beach are so used to human interaction that they will walk right up to you and eat from your hands. 


To get to this 40-acre private island, you’ll have to take a boat from the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino. It’s free to hotel guests and leaves every 15 minutes. Those who aren’t staying at the hotel can pay $99 for a day pass that includes lunch and a drink.

You’ll have plenty of time to hang with the flamingos, but be sure to keep an eye out for other wildlife, such as lizards and huge iguanas, while you’re there.

It’s never too late to make new friends.


My trip to Aruba was made possible by the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino. My day at Flamingo Beach/Renaissance Island was made possible by my wallet. Views expressed are my own.
