    Most of the buildings I mentioned above are in Oranjestad and within walking distance. However, keep in mind, that it is very hot in Aruba. Having a rental car with air-condition will be so much more convenient. Going on a little sight-seeing tour by car might be fun.

    Here is a google map of Oranjestad to give you an idea. There is lots to see. The old Parliament building for instance, which across from the Yacht haven. And the Yacht haven itself. There is the Seaport Marketplace Mall with little restaurants and cafes and much more:

    Another of Aruba's landmarks is the "Old Dutch Windmill". It's located between Palm Beach and Eagle Beach. I have not been inside, only saw it many times from the outside:

    If you want to combine fine dining and another of Aruba's architectural eye-candies, a house build in the "cunucu style", go to:

    "Quinta Del Carmen"

    I have not been there, it just opened in recent years, but would definitely love to visit.

    There are two more typical Aruban landmarks:

    "The California Lighthouse" ~ It's still being renovated, not sure, if the work will be finished by the time you arrive. But, IMO, it's definitely worth to visit, the view is spectacular! There is as well a nice restaurant next to the lighthouse:

    And:

    "Alto Vista Chapel" with the "Peace Labyrinth"
