New construction developments are constantly announced in Aruba. Most developers would like to hit the ground running by showing the world what is coming from their hand.

Recently Airbnb announced that is has become world’s largest supplier of beds to travellers around the world. At press time, Airbnb proudly shared a sheet that shows that they now offer around 4 million listings worldwide and it seems that it only is going to keep growing.

The district of Noord is sought-after by most foreign investors because it is located near main beaches and major supermarkets, restaurants and hotels.

Bay Harbour Aruba was recently announced by experienced developers who have an extensive track record of Aruba condo development. The building was first built in the late 90s but development never really took off. After standing for many years unused, current developers acquire the property in 2016 and have now unveiled plans for the area.

Beachfront properties in Aruba are far and few between. Aruba is only 69 square miles (179 km²) and by our own account, this island has roughly about 7 miles (12 kilometers) of beach strip on the tranquil Caribbean Sea on the western and southern side.
