Oranjestad (Aruba) cruise port

Shortly after 1796, when Fort Zoutman was built, Oranjestad was established around it. Initially, the town had no official name and was known as the "Bay of Horses town" being a place from breeding and raising horses for the neighboring Curacao. The city was named in the 1820s after the first king of Netherlands - William I (1772-1843, also Prince of Orange and Grand Duke of Luxembourg).

Modern amenities in the city are an outdoor shopping mall (at Royal Plaza), as well as dining and drinking venues scattered along Main Street and Main Square. Fort Zoutman is a major tourist attraction, along with the Willem III Tower (near the fort) and the tax-free harbour zone. On the Aruba Island there are a total of 8 museums.

Renaissance Island is a man-made island located off the coast close to Oranjestad. It has a total area of 16 hectares  (40 acres) and is privately owned, with Aruba's two private beaches - Flamingo Beach and Iguana Beach. The private island also has two shipwrecks - Beechcraft 18, and Convair 400, both deliberately sunk in order to create a diving site. Flamingoes can be also seen on the Renaissance Island .
