Aruba to Celebrate 10th National Coastal Clean Up

Aruba’s 10th National Coastal Clean Up, coming up on November 12, is a great volunteer tourism opportunity for clients visiting this popular Caribbean island.

The annual clean up is concentrated on coastal areas throughout the island including the beaches of Arikok National Park, California sand dunes, Wariruri, Baby Beach, Bachelor’s Beach, Boca Grandi, Zeewijk Beach, Mangel Halto, Santo Largo, Arashi, Anaboei, and the open area between the former Bushiri Hotel and the Tamarijn Beach Resort.

The initiative draws around 60 nations worldwide. Public and private sectors join together in this national activity organized for the past ten years by the Environmental Committee of the Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association.

Also, throughout the year, the Eagle Beach Area Coalition for Aruba's Sustainable Tourism participates in the Sponsor-A-Mile Program, a monthly drive that usually takes place on the third Wednesday of the month to keep the beaches of Aruba clean. Visitors can temporarily “adopt” a mile-long stretch of beach to clear off debris and garbage, ensuring that it remains safe for people and coastal animals.
