Owned by Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, private Renaissance Island is approximately 40 acres in size and has two horse shoe-shaped beaches. Iguana Beach is popular with families; Flamingo Beach is adult-only.
There's plenty to do on this far-from-secluded island just off the coastline: Snorkel, scuba, go deep-sea fishing, board a sailing cruise, take out a float, kayak, or paddle boat. You can even play tennis.
You won't go hungry on Renaissance Island: A grill serves burgers, salads, grilled fare, and ice-cold tropical drinks.
Umbrellas coffee bar is right next to the dock, so early risers can stake out a fine piece of sand without sacrificing their morning java. This is also where Waterscapes at Renaissance, a sound-and-light show, attracts all eyes.
