There are enough sightseeing locations on the island to fill up a month-long vacation. Aruba’s beaches are a big attraction, and although it’s great to spend long days just relaxing on the beach and listening to the ocean, there are also plenty of opportunities to get to know Aruba’s most attractive sights, historical and natural attractions, and museums. Check out this attraction you don’t want to miss!
Bubali Bird Sanctuary
Watch more than 80 species of migratory birds from the Bubali watch tower, overlooking their resting and breeding area. The observation tower allows birdwatchers to get a true birds’ eye view. Migratory birds, looking for lush vegetation in which to nest, find an oasis within the Bubali Bird Sanctuary. The nearby water treatment facility empties into two inter-connected man-made bird ponds. Birds that inhabit the sanctuary include herons, egrets, gulls, skimmers, coots, ducks and more. Located within walking distance of the Palm Beach resorts, the Bubali Bird Sanctuary offers some unique bird watching opportunities. You can’t miss it as it is located just in front of the historical Old Dutch Windmill. Make sure to bring your camera as many of these birds will randomly fly by the observation tower giving a little show. This is a great place to bring kids for a unique and possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be so close to the untamed.
The happiest island in the Caribbean is so much more than just sun, sand and sea.
