Palms rustle overhead as you laze on the white sands of a private hideaway, enjoying unfettered views of turquoise seas. Renaissance Island is set aside for guests of the Renaissance Hotel and the Renaissance Suites. Because these hotels are located in the downtown harbor area of Oranjestad, the Renaissance has purchased this private island to offer their guests a sandy protected beach just off shore.
Scheduled ferries transport their guests from the Renaissance hotel properties directly to a small, secluded island that features a restaurant, spa, watersports, volleyball, hammocks and every other amenity that a sun worshipper will need to spend an afternoon in paradise.
De Palm Island
Home to the colorful, twisting slides that make up the Blue Parrotfish Water Park as well as the base for excellent snorkeling, snuba and seatrek adventures, this private island is just a 5-minute ferry ride from the mainland. Hammocks, food and beverage facilities and playground are all available.
