Renaissance Island
Renaissance Island is set aside for guests of the Renaissance Hotel and the Renaissance Suites. Since 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, water-sports, volleyball, hammocks and every other amenity that a sun worshipper will need to spend an afternoon in paradise.

Day passes are $99. For more information visit http://www.arubaprivateisland.com/

De Palm Island
At the mouth of Spanish Lagoon in the Caribbean Sea lies a piece of the coast, the private island of De Palm Island. Due to the beautiful coral reefs with colorful tropical fish, especially large purple-blue parrot fish, the island is one of the most popular diving and snorkeling spots in Aruba.

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, banana boat rides, and playground are all available.

De Palm Island is an all-inclusive attraction, for more information visit http://www.depalmisland.com/
