New Year’s Plunge 2019 at MooMba Beach

The 2019 Unox ‘Nieuwjaarsduik’ at MooMba was a huge success.

It was Tuesday January 1st that about 1,500 enthusiastic participants of the annual Unox New Year’s Plunge ran into the Caribbean Sea at MooMba Beach for the traditional “Nieuwjaarsduik”. For over 10 years locals and tourists the same gather at noon sharp at the popular beach bar to run towards the sea wearing the typical orange Unox winter hats.

The Nieuwjaarsduik forms part of a worldwide series, but the one on Aruba will make everyone at home sick with jealousy when they see you lovely, toned and bronzed body at MooMba Beach. At noon, 12 o’clock sharp, the signal for the plunge is given and swimmers will be racing off towards the ocean seeking eternal fame. Hats are doled out to participants, but expecting a lot more people than last year, come early before they run out and you cannot cover your throbbing or clear head. Participation is free of charge and everyone is welcome to join in.
