You Can Swim With Real-Life Flamingos At This Secluded Beach

Many a version of paradise is flanked by blue oceans, white sands and a lounge chair or two. The tiny Caribbean island of Aruba is the epitome of this – with one glaring exception.

In Aruba, the beaches have flamingos.

Aruba’s Flamingo Beach is located on Renaissance Island, a man-made, privately owned, 40-acre island that features a mangrove and two sandy white beaches. The island belongs exclusively to the four-star Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino in Oranjestad, with guests of the hotel gaining free access to the island everyday between 7am and 7pm. (If you’re not a hotel guest, you can buy a day pass to enter the beach.)

Flamingo beach is an adults-only beach offering spectacular views of the shoreline and the (not so) graceful flamingos traipsing around in their brilliant pink hues. They’re friendly, curious creatures who like to make a bit of a ruckus when they’re together, too – but that’s just part of their appeal, isn’t it?

The island itself is a naturalist’s delight – aside from the flamingos, there’s also pelicans and iguanas, as well as a few gentle amphibious creatures hanging out along the Nature Walk.
