Zeerovers Update

Zeerovers is an Aruban institution, a sort of fisherman’s wharf cum road house that can be found in Savaneta, one of the oldest settlements on the island. I’ve posted about it before and thought it was due for an update. The owners have rebuilt the seating areas out over the water, added some new dock space, and continue to host locals and visitors in a low-key atmosphere. Here is a photo of the new docks.

And you have the opportunity for a game of dominoes, or pool, or just a chat. You might see the catch of the day coming in, or feed a pelican, or watch the local tom cat stalking around. There is no programed feel to the place, just a regular joint where you can put your feet up, kick back, and relax. Sounds just right, doesn’t it?

Bon dia from Aruba.
