    Travel Channel

    So I'm watching HGTV and they are showing their new contest "Trip of a Lifetime 2016" which consists of five islands: Bahamas, Aruba, Barbados, St. Lucia & I forget the last. So they show each island and your accommodations which are first rate, 5 star. When they get to Aruba, I am not sure of this. so I will try to explain because I didn't get the name though I think they said something like isla altrista. Here is what it looked like, maybe someone knows. Its singular, not part of a hotel. You walk down a walkway and at the end is one of those gorgeous huts like you see in Tahiti, singular, you're the only one basically at the end of the pier. Does anyone know or heard of this? They showed scuba diving, the Flying Fishbone, the Fort, the National Park. Its funny when they were going from the airport to this hut place, you saw all the traffic in the downtown area, lol.

    I don't know for sure its the place but from the description in the article, it kind of sounds like it. But I have no idea since I'm not as familiar like alot of you guys are.

    This picture was an old picture of Old Man and the Sea. It is next door to Flying Fishbone and arguably one the most gorgeous spot in Aruba. Many companies use pictures online for their ads. Someone posted on here a few months ago that pictures of Aruba beaches were being used for ads for other Caribbean islands. Anyway, I digress.... the pictures of OMAS that I posted were old so perhaps they now have doors??? I don't think this restaurant is open anymore (?) which would not be at all surprising but may be its used for something else.
