Bubali Bird Sanctuary (Bubali Plas)- Aruba


Situated on the island of Aruba, the Bubali Bird Sanctuary is one of the best places for birdwatching in Caribbean (see Birds of Aruba).

The Bubali Plas, as is known, is a public reserve, formed by a complex of interconnected lakes and wetlands, providing an important refuge for wildlife, especially waterfowl.

On site there is a observation tower (viewpoint ) of about 6 feet tall, which allows the viewer to stay comfortably protected from the sun and with afantastic view of much of the area. Since November 2010 we visited this place twice a year.
