The port of Oranjestad is located in the City Center. This port used to be Aruba's main commercial harbor. However, for logistical and strategic (growth) purposes, cargo activities have been moved to the modernized and reconstructed port or Barcadera. This will limit the amount of commercial activities in Oranjestad, which will make it possible to redevelop the port into a (dedicated) port for Cruise vessels.


Other vessels may still use the Oranjestad facilities upon special request.
