Stroll down Main Street
Caya G. F. Betico Croes is the official name of Oranjestad’s Main Street. It’s been recently renovated into a nice, pedestrian-friendly retail boulevard and tourist destination. Colorful, vivid, historic architecture inspired by Dutch Colonial architecture with a Caribbean flair may be discovered. Up and down this street, there is plenty of shopping to be done. Oh, and if your legs get tired, there’s a free downtown trolley waiting for you!
Shop at Royal Plaza Mall
Oranjestad is an excellent place to get some retail therapy done. Besides Main Street, there are lots of other places to shop, like Royal Plaza.
This large shopping mall in downtown Oranjestad looks like a giant pink decorated cake on the front, but it has a wide range of specialty venues and stores on the inside.
You’ll find everything at Royal Plaza Mall, from worldwide luxury brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Nautica to premium jewelers like Little Switzerland and the island’s official Rolex outlet Gandelman Jewelers, from authentic Aruban souvenir shops to Aruba’s most popular surf shop Bula.
Relax at Eagle Beach
Adventure with De Palm Tours
Oranjestad is an ideal starting place for various ocean-based excursions because of its unique beachside position. Visitors may select from a wide range of custom choices when booking a boat trip or water activity with De Palm Tours, a local business for booking adventures!

Take in the scenery at the Marina
