We’ve got good news to share, in fact, it’s so good it has our mouths watering just thinking about it. It’s always exciting when a new restaurant opens its doors on the island, but it’s especially exciting when it checks off all our boxes, fulfilling our foodie dreams and expectations!
A brand new (pop-up) restaurant, Blu Bar, located at Radisson Blu Aruba has just opened its doors. Offering authentic Peruvian fusion cuisine with a modern twist. While the menu specializes in fresh and vibrant ceviches and tiraditos, it also offers other seafood-centric dishes and International cuisine. The refreshing and upscale atmosphere and picturesque view of the resort‘s pool and lush gardens add to the dine-worthy experience.
You may have noted the phrase “pop-up” earlier, and yes, you’ve read that right – the restaurant cuisine and concept are open to change in the future, allowing for more culinary surprises and creative concepts. Not many pop-up restaurants are offered on the island and certainly not at resorts, making Blu Bar a very refreshing addition to the culinary scene! Worry not, if you’ve already fallen in love with their Peruvian fusion and international dishes it is not going anywhere anytime soon!

Sea Glass Hunting
Make your way to Sea Glass Island with Captain Anthony of Tranquilo Charters on their pontoon boat, and spend the day leisurely combing the shores for sea glass. The finds are always super unique and interesting, you’ll come across plenty of pretty blues, ambers, multi-colored pieces, marbles, and much more! Perhaps the most fun part of sea glass hunting is guessing the mysterious story behind each unique piece. Don’t forget a bag so you can take them back home with you to create some fun and beautiful island art!
Fun fact: Taking sea glass back home from Aruba is legal, as it is manmade, not a natural element of the environment. However, taking sand, sea shells, and coral back home from Aruba is not permitted.
