Klip also scene of beach camping (near down town)
Yesterday camping at Aruba beaches and surrounding areas has officially started. This years-old-tradition officially lasts until the 19th of this month.
During the next two weeks several people take camping gear to popular beaches and live without many amenities. This tradition is closely linked to the Easter Holiday.
For many it might look like a disorganized happening, but nothing can be farther from the truth. Each single camping leader is in a possession of a valid permit to do so. The permit is very strict and failure to comply will result in a void of the permit, therefore camping illegally. The permit carries terms and rules of the camping, such as noise levels after 10 pm, environmental rules (no littering on the beach, no BBQ on the beach, no driving on the beach and no animals on the beach to mention a few) and general behavior.
From what I understand from the police department, there are less permits given out this year in comparison to last year. Expect to see campers at Arashi Beach, Eagle Beach and Baby Beach among others. Remember, beaches remain open and accessible to everyone as all Aruba beaches are public.
