Isla di Oro is a vast wetland mangrove area on Aruba where different ecosystems meet. The dive site of the same name consists of a vast shallow sand strip with a reef similar to that of the Mangel Halto dive site. Common types of coral on this reef are brain, star and plate coral. Coral lobsters, snappers, trumpet fish and angelfish are regular inhabitants. Isla di Oro means island of gold.


Isla di Oro is not only a unique collection of ecosystems but also a former party island with an abandoned restaurant built in the shape of a boat. You can reach the location after a fairly long walk through the area. A boat dive is recommendable.


The use of a surface buoy is recommended at Isla di Oro. Extended walking or wading through mangrove area.
