Aruba Hosts Record Breaking 500 Guests At Caribbean's Largest Vow Renewal Ceremony For Second Year

Lovebirds Renew Their I Do's on World's No. 4 Beach

Aruba Bound

ORANJESTAD, Aruba, Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the overwhelming success of the inaugural vow renewal ceremony held in 2017, Aruba touted hundreds of amorous lovebirds from around the world on the panoramic, powdery-white sands of Aruba's world-famous Eagle Beach, on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018. A global event, couples traveled to the romantic island from Germany, Italy, Brazil and all over the United States, eager to renew their I Do's at sunset. More than 500 guests gathered for the iconic celebration, solidifying Aruba as the primary Caribbean destination to say "I Do" times two. A historical milestone for the One happy island, the ceremony provided newlyweds and spouses with the opportunity to participate in the Caribbean's largest vow renewal ceremony for the second year in a row, exclusively in Aruba.

"As one of the most romantic islands in the world, Aruba continues to attract an increasing number of lovebirds to our beloved destination. With countless award-winning beaches to choose from, Aruba is a staple landmark for visitors traveling to the Caribbean," said Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA). "The energy was palpable and truly magnetic as we witnessed hundreds of couples, young and old, publicly renew their commitment to one another in paradise. We wish each of our guests an endless supply of happiness and lifetime of love and look forward to welcoming them back to our One happy island."

Among the 500+ participants were travel influencers and celebrity couples – including Lydia and Doug McLaughlin, famously known from Bravo TV's "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum from season seven of "The Bachelorette."

"There's nowhere else we'd rather 'renew our I Do's' than in Aruba, it's absolutely breathtaking," said Ashley Rosenbaum. "We're overjoyed to have shared this experience with the company of our children and know this moment in time is one we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. The One happy island is truly magical."

The enchanting evening displayed twinkling lights, tropical décor and chic ambiance, inspired by real destination weddings in Aruba, and featured elegant white linen with pops of vibrant Caribbean colors. Couples relished in the opportunity to celebrate their love on the world's No. 4 beach – while enjoying champagne, hors d'oeuvres, local music and Carnival-like festivities.

Aruba's complimentary vow renewal ceremony occurred Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018 from 5:30-7:30 pm on Eagle Beach. For more details: www.aruba.com/arubaido.

About Aruba
As one of the most revisited destinations in the Caribbean, Aruba — One happy island — is an island of contradictions, where pristine turquoise waters collide against the desert-like terrain of the north shore; where peace and relaxation coexist with wild and rugged adventures; where Dutch influence meets American ease and where a diverse history parallels a bright future. Nestled in the southern Caribbean outside the fringes of the hurricane belt, the island is just a two-and-a-half-hour flight from Miami, a four-hour flight from New York City and boasts year-round cooling trade winds with an average 82-degree temperature. Aruba offers beach-lovers, adrenaline junkies, relaxation-seekers and everyone in between a slice of paradise with breathtaking beaches, a booming culinary scene of over 300 restaurants with 25+ located ideally on the water, world-famous festivals and events, exciting land and water activities, art galleries and museums, sumptuous spas, championship golf, exclusive shopping and signature experiences such as cooling off in Conchi, Aruba's natural pool— accessible only by foot or off-road vehicle. With all-inclusive options, boutique properties in charming Eagle Beach, high-rise branded resorts in Palm Beach and cosmopolitan city hotels in Oranjestad, the island of contradictions provides the perfect getaway for both first-time guests and loyal visitors.

Palm Beach Restoration Project Starts June 2018

After 2 years of planning, Varadero Aruba will be doing a big beach revitalization and restoration project.

The area that is being restored is the beach between the Playa Linda Beach Resort and MooMba Beach.

The project will last from June 2018 until November 2018. The goal is to remove sludge-like sand/silt by depositing it 1 kilometer off shore. This sand/silt will then be replaced with clean sand. The goal of this project is to restore the cleanliness and appearance of our beaches. This will be executed by professionals equipped with approved machinery.

The redistributed sludge is composed out of all organic material and is not contaminated. According to the Dutch Soil Quality Regulation, the sludge was assessed as safe for land or surface water. Marine life will be monitored by the Nature and Environment Office (Dienst Natuur en Milieu), during this process.

The area between Playa Linda Beach Resort and MooMba Beach will be divided into 6 sections of 50 to 80 meters each. The sections will be worked on one by one, they will be closed off with gates, and there will be signs present to inform visitors of Palm Beach. It will take about a month to complete each section.

Please note that the water may be murky during the operation, as sand is lifted, causing a cloudy effect. Swimming and diving is allowed and safe outside of the restricted areas.

Fewer, but really special participants at the Donkey Walk 2018

Aruba Bound

Although the organizers of the annual Donkey Walk may normally count on 200 to 300 participants, this year there were a lot fewer athletes who showed up. This was due to the fact that another walk took place in Parke Arikok that day. But that did not spoil the fun as more than one hundred participants joined in a terrific walk through Aruba’s fantastic nature. Three lovely donkeys walked along – they finished the almost 6 kilometers with ease.

Most participants are walking at the Donkey Walk, but there are also the runners, who are fiercely committed to finish with a good result. First in the Women’s Category was Elizabether Kelkboom; Mito Werleman was first in the Men’s Division. Ransey de Cuba, 17 years old and a student at the Emmaschool, finished in his wheelchair – it had been his fervent wish to participate and the Off Road Wheelchair Aruba foundation saw to it that Ransey could use an electric wheelchair and an assistant. Ransey was probably the participant who enjoyed the Donkey Walk the most. Smiling a big smile he crossed the finish line and went straight to the table where the fruit (courtesy of SuperFood) was laid out. He also loved the gift that Matthew’s restaurant donated to all participants. Well done, Ransey!
