Up there with Provence's lavender fields, Turkey's hot air balloon festival and Finland's Northern Lights in terms of sheer Instagrammability is the Flamingo Beach in Aruba.
The private beach, located on Renaissance Island off the west coast of Aruba, is swarming with the beautiful pink birds it gets its name from.
Exclusive to guests of the Renaissance Aruba Resort, beach goers can relax by the palm tree-lined shores as the friendly birds paddle in the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea or wander up the beach.
You can be sipping on a cocktail and snacking on some beachside treats to look up and find a flamboyance (yes, the name for a group of flamingos - how amazing) at your side.
Yeah, you don't have to twist our arm with this one... what's not to love about the idea of hanging beachside with the majestic pink creatures?
If this sounds like your dream day out, you'll need to be booked into the 556-room hotel, which comes with a casino, spa, health club and beach bars. Lush.
The adult-only beach is accessible for those not staying at the hotel, but you'll need a day pass to visit costing $125 (£100) and is only bookable on a first come first serve basis from 7am the day before (so you'll have to be on the ball to scoop one up!)
The island is accessible via ferries from the mainland which leave every 15 minutes from 7am and includes lunch and one cocktail at the island's Papagayo Bar & Grill or Mangrove Beach Bar.
Kids can only visit the beach from 9-10am and visitors are warned not to "yell, clap your hands at or attempt to scare the flamingos," with "touching, chasing, holding and teasing the flamingos prohibited."
Renaissance resort call the island "the perfect escape for adult guests where sun, sand and real flamingos make this postcard scene come to life." They say the beach offers "a relaxed, pristine stretch of sand set aside for adults only, where flamingos roam freely and share-worthy moments last a lifetime."
TAKE US THERE.
