How we look at traveling has shifted in recent years with the rise of social media.
Because of content creators/influencers, we see more and more people simply traveling to certain destinations or visiting specific spots for the sake of Instagram shots. We’ve all done it, right? You can’t just go on vacation anymore without rubbing it in your friends and family’s faces. But now, it’s not just about posting any picture anymore. It’s about THE picture at THE spot. Aruba is the perfect place to beautify your grid and make your followers just a little bit jealous. Let’s talk about all the amazing spots for envious Instagram posts, stories, and reels in Aruba!
They say if you have something blue in your post, you’ll get more likes. Well, at Rum Reef, your post will be pretty much all blue. The infinity pool over the blue ocean water makes for amazing content!
This spot was made for this. Depending on what side you take it from, you’ll get a beach background or a wooden deck surrounded by mangroves. I can guarantee many likes on this one.
The original social post, some would say. Posting about your coffee. Well, this blog post will give you some ideas for instagrammable coffee spots on the island. What’s better than discovering new places, having a nice cup of coffee with dessert, and taking a nice shot for the gram?
The murals in San Nicolas are all done by local and international artists. The best part of this insta-spot is that you can take more than 1 photo for your grid. In this area only, you can create content for months to come. Just make sure you put some other shots in between these posts.
The recently renovated stairs at Rodger’s Beach are beautiful from every angle. Take a shot at the top walking down, and you’ll have the blue ocean water behind you. Take the shot from the bottom, and you’ll catch some of the most beautiful mosaic art on the island. You can’t go wrong here.
One of the most beautiful, somewhat hidden beaches on the island is Mangel Halto. The crystal clear water makes it almost impossible to resist jumping in. The different shades of blue make the perfect backdrop to your insta-shots. The mangrove area really gives off secluded location vibes.
This little cove is a favorite amongst locals and visitors. Amazing for swimming, snorkeling, and taking amazing Instagram shots. What’s unique here, aside from the beautiful blue waters, of course, is that you can float around and have your picture taken from above. Have your photographer stand at the edge of the limestone cove while you float around either alone or in a donut. Choose bright-colored swimwear or floaties to make your post really pop. You can also take your pics going up the 3 steps that are carved into the limestone.
Do you know what you don’t see a lot of on insta? Donkeys. The Donkey Sanctuary is a safe haven for injured or abused wild donkeys. It’s also the perfect place for unique Instagram shots.
Originally the old family home of well-known local World War II hero Boy Ecury, the Archeological Museum of Aruba is full of iconic photo ops! The green two-story building will for sure stand out in your followers’ insta feed.
People love food on Instagram. They love watching people make food, eating food, and looking at pictures of food. This blog post will give you an idea of some of the best instagrammable breakfast spots in Aruba. Chicken and waffles on my feed? Yes, please!
The island’s favorite smoothie bowl spot is a must-stop for your insta post. The colorful creations are sure to make your followers drool.
This iconic red anchor has been one of Aruba’s most popular picture spots since before social media existed. Let’s keep it alive, shall we? It overlooks the sea and stands there in memory and in honor of all seamen who have lost their life at sea. If you’re heading to insta-spot #2 & #6, you can’t miss it!
