Aruba is a small, perennially sunny Caribbean gem, that is popular with the soon-to-be-wed, and for good reason. With its beautiful beaches and flourishing flora, Aruba’s scenic options can make a couple’s big day a remarkable occasion.
Blushing beach bride. If waves cresting over a stretch of white sand is the order of the day, then Eagle Beach is the destination. Situated just northwest of Oranjestad, Eagle Beach boats a beautiful, powdery shoreline that earns it top spot on a number of “best beaches” lists.
Natural nuptials. Earthy couples will appreciate the natural beauty of the stunning Ayo and Casibari rock formations. While the rugged terrain might pose a challenge for those dressed in their bridal best, these giant boulders are part of a phenomenal landscape. The best time to visit is early in the morning to beat the heat and the cruise ship crowds.
Surf’s up. Andicuri Beach is a stunning black-pebble beach on the island’s east coast. With its craggy cliffs and majestic surf, this hidden gem makes for great photo shoots. While swimming is not advised, the juxtaposition of the turquoise sea crashing against its unique shoreline is simply awesome.
Multi-coloured memories. The picturesque capital city of Oranjestad is impressive eye candy, with its Dutch colonial architecture awash in candy-coloured hues. Plaza Daniel Leo is ideally situated in the centre of the fray, making it the perfect photographic outpost for more bridal photography.
