Enjoy the Bournemouth Air Festival at Aruba

Our location right on the beach means you'll get the perfect view of the action from August 31 to September 3.

Come to Aruba Beach Bar and Restaurant during the Bournemouth Air Festival (August 31 to September 3) and you can enjoy a special air show menu and some of the best views of the action from your table.

The festival is, of course, the UK’s biggest air show, with more than 8 million visitors since its debut in 2008. As you can imagine, things get busy, both down on Bournemouth beach and up on the clifftop vantage points.

Special air show offer

That’s why we’re giving customers the chance to reserve a table or booth during the festival for a guaranteed spot for lunch or dinner. We’re even putting on a special air show menu showcasing some of our most popular Caribbean dishes. And if you want to warm up or wind down with a classic Caribbean cocktail before or after your meal, our balcony area gives you uninterrupted views across the bay on either side of the pier.

Because Air Festival weekend is so busy, book now to secure your table. It costs just £10 pre-pay to book your table, or £200 for your VIP booth, available for 2 hours and 4 hours respectively.

Don’t leave it to chance and find yourself without somewhere to sit and have lunch with the family. With so much to see at the air show, we’re expecting yet another bumper year on the beach with large crowds. Highlights of the festival include:

  • Red Arrows fly past at 6pm on Thursday, 3.30pm on Friday and noon on Saturday
  • The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight
  • Strikemaster Pair display
  • Red Devils Parachute Regiment Freefall team
  • And out on the water, a flotilla of Royal Navy Ships.

It’s the biggest free event in Bournemouth as summer winds down. Come and enjoy the spectacle, but don’t forget to secure your favourite spot for lunch or dinner at Aruba!
