Picking the perfect place to propose to your partner is an important decision, and it can be a tricky one. This is probably going to be the most important question you ask in your life, so you want everything to be exactly right.
Many couples choose to make their proposal special with a trip abroad, and it is hard to think of a better and more romantic destination than the Caribbean. Served by the very best cruise ships and boasting the prettiest beaches, gorgeous scenery, and stunning climate, a Caribbean trip is a great start when planning your proposal.
But the Caribbean is a large and varied place, and it is important to narrow down your options a little. One of the most popular choices for a magical Valentine’s destination in the Caribbean is Aruba.
Aruba is an ideal destination for the ultimate romantic getaway. The beautiful white sand beaches, the striking rocky cliffs and coves, the palm-fringed dunes, and the stunning sunsets create the perfect backdrop for that once-in-a-lifetime moment when you pop the question.
So if you are considering packing your bags and heading out to the paradise island of Aruba to propose, here are some of the best places to pop the question on this exquisite, romantic island.
Baby Beach is an idyllic sheltered cove in the south of the island, the perfect place for tranquil, undisturbed romance. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, a soft white sand beach, gently swaying palm trees, and breathtakingly beautiful sunsets, this is the perfect romantic spot for a proposal. With any luck, you’ll have the place to yourself, so you can make a memory that lasts forever.
This secret lagoon is an exotic, secluded spot that lies just off the eastern coast of Aruba. Sheltered by rocky cliffs and mangroves, the Spanish Lagoon is a paradise of peace and tranquility, perfect for anyone looking for a break from the crowds and the tourists. As such, it makes the ideal spot to enjoy a private moment with your special someone and share your love with them just the way you want to.
This iconic landmark on the north coast of Aruba is one of the most eye-catching buildings on the island. Standing at the highest point of Aruba, the California Lighthouse offers stunning views out over the ocean and across the island’s interior. Pop the question at the top or take a romantic helicopter ride from the lighthouse and make an incredible aerial proposal!
For something a little more traditional, you can’t go wrong with a classic beach proposal. Arashi Beach is one of the most beautiful stretches of sand on the island and makes the perfect place to pop the question. Peaceful and secluded, this lovely beach on the northwest coast of Aruba serves up stunning sunsets and gorgeous views out across the sea, making it a truly special place to share your love and make a lifelong commitment.
Alto Vista Chapel
The Alto Vista Chapel is a beautiful Catholic chapel perched precariously on the cliffs on the north coast of Aruba. Dedicated to the Virgin of Alto Vista, it is a charming and picturesque spot, with stunning views along the rocky Aruba coast, and delightful architecture to match. It conjures up a wonderfully romantic ambiance - a lone building gazing out to sea - making it the perfect spot for a memorable proposal.
Wherever you choose to make your proposal, Aruba is the ideal destination for a Valentine’s trip to the Caribbean.
