    Question Where is Cura Cubai

    Going to the beach is an activity so I will post here???

    Sorry I cannot post the link, but this is part of an article from "the Morning News"

    "...The three targeted areas are Baby Beach in San Nicolas, which is often frequented by vacationers, Surfside, on the eastern end of Oranjestad, adjacent to the airport, and the bay at Cura Cubai, at the western end of San Nicolas, which is rarely visited, but offers excellent conditions for many water activities.

    The Surfside area is a popular place with islanders, particularly on weekends. The area to be developed is between the Plaza Turismo and the airport, and is actually a part of the second phase of development of the Aruba Linear Park. This will eventually stretch along the coastline, from the Reina Beatrix International Airport to north of Malmok and beyond Palm Beach. Minister Sevinger signed the official agreement for commencement of the second phase of the park two week ago.

    All three beaches will be groomed and landscaped with increased foliage and parking areas. Concession stands for water activities and snacks will be added, as well as public sanitation facilities, adequate refuse containers, and reinforced piers for fishing boats at Surfside and Cura Cabai.

    Minister Oduber cited the many advantages of improving these areas, which convinced the government to propose the projects and Parliament to approve them. The benefits will be both to visitors and the community in general. Part of the plan entails arranging with several of the cruise ships to deploy these beaches for their passengers when calling in Oranjestad Harbor. This will relieve the congestion that often occurs along Palm Beach, where the shorefront is already crowded with hotel guests. By directing the vast number of single-day visitors to these attractive, empty beaches, the vacation experience will be improved for both cruise ship passengers and stay over visitors. ..."
    For the life of me, I cannot think of where this is. Google rarely lets me down, but this time no such luck. Is it the southern most end of Rodgers Beach where the fishermen's boats are moored?

    Look here first http://www.caribbean-on-line.com/islands/ar/armap.shtml
    And then in Grid M-12 and 13 you will see Cura Cubai and the word "Beach" looks like it's on the "Inlet" further up from Old Man and the Sea.

    I was always curious what those pipelines and arms looked like that pumped the oil into the tankers.
