Bugaloe Beach Bar (located at Divi & Tamarijn)

Bugaloe Beach Bar is an adorable little bar, right on the water. We recommend going during happy hour (5pm-6pm) where you can experience some of the best sunset views and enjoy live music. This is definitely one of the most lively bars in Aruba, and you are sure to get out of your seat and dance a little!

Located in the heart of San Nicolas, this interestingly decorated bar is a major hotspot. This is a locally owned bar that is away from all of the hotels and tourist areas. You are sure to have an authentic experience at Charlies.
