Aruba 2: Sun and food!
After waking up and having breakfast, I went for a long walk along the beach. Stopping every other time for pictures. What’s a better workout than walking or jogging feeling the sand on your feet and that gorgeous natural scenery!
Then, for few hours, I just relaxed at the beach getting some tan. Yes, I’m latin but it’s hard for me to get tan, I burn! lol
The water is so calm in the area of Palm Beach. Clear waters, white sand. There are a lot of places where the water is so cold that takes few minutes to get used to it and enjoy. This one is a bit warmer than that, so good to swim a little.
There are many activities you can enjoy, as windsurf, paddle board, parasailing, wave runner and more. Although, comparing to Punta Cana maybe, they don’t do it close to the shore, they take you away so you can do it safely.
From the hotel in Palm Beach, we rode to the area of Savaneta. Stopping at few places for pictures and videos.
For lunch, actually for a late lunch and early dinner, I wanted to try something really nice, a bit over my budget (I was with family, so it didn’t matter) but super good food, beautiful place and great ambience: ‘Flying Bonefish’. A perfect place for dinner (they are open after 5pm). It is located in Savaneta, few minutes away from Palm Beach. If you say the name of the restaurant to a taxi they’ll known, and after your meal, you’ll be ask if you need a cab or not.
Delicious dishes while your feet relax on the sand, they even have a thing to place your shoes while eating and then a spot to wash your feet before you leave. The staff were really friendly with us and helpful. And even when we couldn’t enjoy a beautiful sunset as the day before (read day 1), the whole experience was very nice.
It will probably take you longer than usual to have dinner, but it’s all about relaxing and enjoying the moment.
On the way back to Palm Beach, we stopped by downtown to check it out. Nice area to see during daylight. After a walk, I visited a nice (and fun) place: ‘Salt & Pepper’. I had a ‘hurricane’ and stay for a little while. I read in the menu that if you bring a set of ‘salt and pepper’ you get a free sangria! If you go around you’ll see a big collection of various sets. Even at the tables, they have different sets. The following day, went to have breakfast and it was delicious (read Day 3 in Aruba-soon). Great place to grab something to eat, drink or ‘tapas’ and drinks.
